Maghain Aboth Synagogue

The Maghain Aboth Synagogue is a reminder of how far back Singapore’s multicultural roots go.

Constructed in 1878, the synagogue is in fact one of the oldest surviving Jewish buildings in Southeast Asia and stands in what used to be the country's Jewish quarter .

The building boasts a simple neoclassical façade punctuated by a covered porch with an entrance arch big enough to accommodate horse carriages. From here, a wide flight of steps sweeps up to three doors.

The interiors are a hybrid of Neoclassical and colonial style architecture, with traditional columns and rustic walls deliberately kept bare of any decoration or images.

Yet the combination of marble floors, timber-louvred windows and red carpets with teak and rattan pews achieve an elegant simplicity.
