Description

The Great Synagogue in Bykhov was built in the 17th century, and reconstructed later in the 18th century. It is one of the best preserved synagogues in Belarus. Around the year 1990 the building was abandoned.

The documentation undertaken in 1993 lead to the discovery of the remains of stucco decoration and paintings in the dome of the bimah support.

The only preserved painting was a depiction of a vase located on one of the piers of the bimah.
