Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue
Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue is located right from the busy lane off 26th Street in central Yangon. Nowadays, this is the only Jewish house in Myanmar.
The building was constructed in the 1890s to serve the 2,500 Jews, who migrated here from the Middle East. After the invasion of Japanese in World War II, the Jews were forced to escape from Burma and settle in other countries.
Today, there are only 20 Jews living in Yangon.
The synagogue has kept its quaint blue-colour colonial-style facade. The high ceiling, graceful columns and the Star of David make the interior spacious.
Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue is a special place where Burmese, Hindus and Muslims co-exist happily and peacefully.
: 09:00 – 12:00 daily, Saturdays and other holydays open until evening
