I stopped by on a Saturday while touring with Bob Percival. This is an excellent place to see a gorgeous old restored synagogue. I think you need to get there before 12 pm to be able to walk around the inside. The restoration was gorgeous. There is also a clean squat toilet outside.

It's easy to miss Myanmar's only Synagogue. Located in downtown Yangon, it is loving restored and maintained by tge Samuels family, one of the few remaining Jew families. Very honoured to have been invited to visit the Synagogue when it was awarded tge Blue Plaque by the Yangon Heritage Trust as one of the city's cultural heritages.

This is an amazing story of survival and history. It is hard to believe that this temple has survived 2 World Wars and the 6 Day war in Israel and so much more!
