Ohel Leah Synagogue
70 Robinson Road

The Ohel Leah Synagogue was built in 1902 by a Jewish banker, Sir Jacob E. Sassoon, in memory of his mother, Leah E. Sassoon. The two-storey building may have been influenced by Middle Eastern religious architecture and features a balcony on the upper floor for woman devotees. The renovation project undertaken in 1998 won the Outstanding Project Award at the 2000 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Culture Heritage Conservation.
