I was amazed by this building and it's architecture. During the warm summer days, the temperature inside is 10C less than outside.

In the old city tucked away amid shops. We visited on a tour of churches. Great shops around as well and always greeted by friendly people.

This is a synagogue which is situated at old market in Nazareth. This place is quite inside and not easily identified. Okay place.

I wandered into this little place when I was looking for the White Mosque - but so glad it did. It is a real find. Its simplicity is special.

A seemingly modest building is an excellent example of a first century synagogue which also represented the local meeting place. A well trained guide will also explain the history, customs and the local Gospel significance of the building.
