This is a gem of Jew Town with a curious mix, very telling of the port city with a mish mash. The tiles particularly are interesting feature.

Seems a bit cold with the staff barking out directions of no photos and take your shoes off although there are enough signs to show you what to do. You cannot take piks too and there is not much literature about it bug the paintings inside show the journey of the Jews to India and their settling in here. Only... More

Removing shoes and no photographs. This is a very small synagogue and the highlights are the chandeliers. The floor tiles are original and locally made. It is in a very old neighborhood and has nice shops nearby. I particularly liked a women's cooperative spice store.

The Jew temple is here along with the crafts and arts all the way through the street. Usually the synagogue closes by 1 PM. They have depicts which showcase their history and charge you 5 rupees per person to visit

I had never been to a Sanyagoug before so was curious to see this place when I was in Kochi. There is hardly anything to see here, apart from the colourful tiles and old Chandeliers. There are few paintings in a separate hall showing the arrival of Jews in Kochi. Apart from this there is nothing much to see. Pics... More

Silent and nice Jews prayer hall. As per the local guide only five Jews families left in the town and they still pray in the hall rest of the Jews migrated to Israel.Tiles were hand painted.
