Pleasant impression
Oct 2016 • Solo
The synagogue is located near the historic center of the city. In general, this district of Ahmedabad can be considered a bastion of religious tolerance – there are mosques, Hindu temples and even temple of Zoroastrians from Parsi. There are very few Jews in Ahmedabad, but their community is very active.
The synagogue itself leaves a pleasant impression. It's not old, but represents a rather organic fusion of Jewish and Indian religious architecture, which in itself is very interesting. Inside there are stained-glass windows. The finish is quite rich for synagogues, often very simple; suffice it to say that in flooring was used the marble. The ceilings are high, and that provides good lighting. The entrance portal is arched, with two pairs of columns on each side and a triangular fronton over them.

A lovely building. The "gabai" lives behind the building and will let you in. They hold services on Friday night which are open to all. When we were there, mid-February, this began at 18:30, i.e., about half an hour before sunset.
