Brilliant spot. With my hooky nose they asked if I was qualified to make up the numbers! The town area is confusing and quiet, but some of the workshops were fascinating.

Nothing special to see inside the synagogue. The streets leading to that place is lined up with ornaments and all that touristic items for sale.

One of the famous tourist spots in Fort Kochi area. I think on Friday it remains closed, please confirm about it. Takes about half an hour to finish the visit. Simple, but worth admiring !
