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.

Briefly visited this synagogue in October. Lovely calm place just off the street. Beautifully well preserved inside, obviously well looked after. Pictorial history is shown too which is very interesting but sad
This was a great little synagogue, the oldest in India, which has been restored and turned into a small museum. The explanations are very good, and I am happy to see that it is in a good state.
