Gaziantep Synagogue, also known as the Great Synagogue of Gaziantep, is an abandoned synagogue located in Gaziantep in the eastern region of Turkey. It was closed after the last remaining members of Gaziantep's Jewish population left the city in the 1970s and is currently in a state of disrepair.
The synagogue was a two-story, stone building large enough to accommodate several hundred worshippers. The date of its construction is unknown.
