Magen Abraham Synagogue, Ahmedabad Reviews
The one and only Synagogue of the Bene Israeli Jewish community in the Ahmedabad and the entire state of Gujarat. It is built in the Art deco style with marble chequered floors and a large ark, using the Indo-Judaica architectural form having Grecian pillars with a triangular roof and high ceiling.The women's balcony is unusual (as compared to other synagogues in India) in that it is not supported by pillars. Entry to the synagogue is difficult if you are not a Jew but, not impossible. You may have to deposit a identification document for security reasons.
