The synagogue is located in the middle of the old city of Kogon, between the train station and the Russian Orthodox church. It is situated in a courtyard and currently is surrounded by later additions. The two-story brick building is approximately of the same high as the church. Its dimensions are 12 x 15 m. The main façade is tripartite, the central part with the main entrance is slightly protruding. Its upper triangular part is decorated by two shallow niches with a half-column between them, which may allude to the Tablets of the Law. The building consists of a two-story high prayer hall, a vestibule with auxiliary rooms on the ground floor and a women’s section above them. The ceiling of the prayer hall is supported by four pillars; it is not known yet if they are original or were added in Soviet times. The women’s section is connected to the hall through segment-headed arches with a metal rail. The entrance to the women’s section was probably via an exterior wooden staircase which is not preserved. The direction of prayer is this synagogue was towards northwest.

Although the synagogue was recently listed as a protected monument, its current situation demands immediate rescue.
