Situated in the lanes of Jew town. Nothing extraordinary. Small building. Quiet and peaceful place. Does not need much time to be covered. Kids will get bored. Architecture of the synagogue was very simple.

It's a small museum with all the artifacts related to Jewish history. This place is also called as JewTown. There is a temple as well but that was closed. Photography is not allowed inside.
