The lovingly maintained interior of this 1896 building contains a bimah (platform holding the reading table for the Torah) in the centre of the main sanctuary and a women’s balcony upstairs. The wooden ceiling features the original blue-and-white Star of David motif. It's best to contact Sammy Samuels at info@myanmarshalom.com to be sure of gaining access to the synagogue.

The synagogue was once the focal point of an influential community of Sephardic Jews from India and Baghdad that at its height in the early 20th century numbered 2500.
