It is the final Jewish house of worship in Downtown Yangon and Burma's just synagogue. The synagogue remains between Indian paint shops and Muslim brokers on a little road close to the downtown area.
The affectionately kept up inside of this 1896 building contains a bimah stage holding the perusing table for the Torah in the focal point of the fundamental asylum and a ladies' gallery upstairs. The wooden roof includes the first blue-and-white Star of David motif.
The synagogue was before the point of convergence of a persuasive group of Sephardic Jews from India and Baghdad that at its tallness in the mid-twentieth century numbered 2500.Occasionally as a rule on Jewish high occasions administrations are held in the synagogue, which has one of the Yangon Heritage Trust's blue plaques.
