The Lions Shul

The Lions Shul is one of the oldest Jewish places of worship in South Africa and was a part of the first seven original synagogues in the city. However the present facade dates back to 1932, after the original synagogue was majorly damaged in a fire accident. Also known as Doornfontein Synagogue, this synagogue gets its name as Lions Shul due to the sculptures of two lions guarding its entrance. The beautiful synagogue has an old world charm while its interiors are spacious and adorned with beautiful artifacts.

St. Athanasios Greek Orthodox Church

An, as yet, unexplained phenomenon occurs in one of the windows in this stately church each day as the sun is setting. The image resembling the crucifixion of Christ appears in only one of the windows, although it is of the same hue, consistency and construction as all the others. To date, no chemical or physical explanation has been found, and the occurrence is widely accepted as a form of stigmata. The window is of hammered, amber glass and grants an amazingly clear picture of the scenes at Golgotha. For visits, phone and arrange details.
