Magen David synagogue is an Orthodox Sephardi synagogue located in Byculla Mumbai. What I observed that this place need maintainance. I heard that this place is still there because of donations from abroad. This place is really calm and good.
I've been fortunate to visit the synagogue in 2013 and attend the reading of the Torah on the Sabbath. It was a great experience for me to witness how the few Indian Jews practiced their Jewish faith at this synagogue. Must visit for those who...More

Mumbai has several synagogues, all struggling with very few members, they survive primarily on donations from abroad. This one is particularly well maintained, in part because it still runs its large school -- 98% of whose students are Muslims.
One of the seven islands of the original Bombay, Byculla is one of the most evolved neighbourhoods in Mumbai that has consistently rebuilt itself for the modern-day locals while keeping its confluence of heritage and history intact. Once a home to only the wealthy, Byculla is today a home to the most diverse communities like Parsis, Iranians, Christians, Jews,
Portugese, Maharashtrians and Muslims. While the akharas (wrestling joints), world-famous Dhobi Ghat, Mumbai’s only zoo are all sprinkled across this suburb, the roads quickly lead to the more popular areas of the Haji Ali Dargah, Race Course and the Mahalakshmi Temple within a few minutes.
