Jew Town is best known for its synagogue and the shopping. The shops range from quite high end (and expensive) to open stalls and it is interesting enough to wander through the streets.

Good place for shopping. Eateries are expensive. One can buy souvenir from the road side shops. Lot of negotiations can be done in pricing.

Jew Town is an attraction but it is much more crowdier and more chaotic than Fort Kochi and the Chinese Fishnet area. But there are thigs to see and to buy when you are prepared tp do some haggling.

There are many shops in this area. Lots to see and purchase if you have space left in your suitcase. If not buy another one here too. Lots of handcrafted items. Make sure you bargain.

Good place to see the traditional Jewish culture and business houses .accessability from kochi town is easy by any public transport or if in groups can hire tempo vans which will take you there on hired basis.

We bicycled down the alleys with quaint houses - some residences, but mostly restaurants and shops- selling spices or colourful handicrafts. An amazing way to spend an afternoon. Bring your bargaining skill along. Also worth visiting are the Pardesi Synagogue and Mattancherry Palace popularly known...More
