    There are just a handful of synagogues in Kerala. The most visited one is in Kochi. This is a very laid back place. Unassuming and calm. There is a nominal entry fee. The inside is rather sparse and l...  more »

    Interesting little place. It shuts at 1pm. We made it by 1 minute. Its only small and resembles an antiques shop with its chandeliers and what looked lime Chinese willow patterned floor tiles.  more »

    From Dutch Palace, we headed to the close-by 400-year-old Jewish Synagogue. Constructed in AD 1567 by the Jews who migrated to this area for trade, Jewish Synagogue is rated as the oldest synagogue in all the 53 member-countries of the Commonwealth of Nations, I was quite disappointed because pictures were not allowed, but I think removing our shoes is pretty much a norm as in elsewhere sightseeing spots. Once we walked inside, we felt akin we've been transported to back then 16th Century. We appreciated the collection of the gifted chandeliers, the blue willow-patterned Chinese floor tiles, the Scrolls of the Law, the several gold crowns, the brass-railed pulpit and the copper plates.

    The shopping lane leading up to the synagogue is interesting enough, but the synagogue itself, apart from its historical relevance, is nothing spectacular. Filled with do not touch posters instead of signboards with historical information, it is more like a quick walk in and walk out. The anteroom, with about ten paintings and tidbits of history, is far more interesting. However, it would be a better experience if the history was narrated in more detail and contextualised.

    Oldest Jewish Synagogue in the country. Amazing experience. Better you park near the Dutch Palace before heading here.
