Paradesi Synagogue, Kochi Reviews

  • Really loved the visit here. I'm a person who loves the Jewish way of living. Hence I really enjoyed the time I spent here. This is one of the ancient synagogue 🕍 built in India during the monarch ruling Times. The history depicted in the stones are a worth reading. If you wish to visit this place, you must ensure that you visit during the working hours. For your convenience, I'm uploading the work timings of the synagogue. Have a nice day!

  • Nice place for knowing Jewish history and a very silent place to be , if you need a peace of mind during your travel this is the place you should be . Photography is prohibited as it is a sacred place. Parking is too far away from synagogue . Local market is treat to watch , such beautiful things in market to be purchased for the home decor. I loved the market more than the synagogue.

  • An everlasting memory. An elegant masterpiece of construction. A enchantingly beautiful prayer hall. Wonderful and awesome. These all describes less about the Jewish Synagogue. You have to pay a visit to feel its charm and the times in which the synagogue was built and until now maintained. It's a symbol of care and worship of Jewish community.

  • The Jewish synagogue or Pardesi synagogue is the oldest synagogue in Commonwealth nations. It indicates the unity in diversity of Kochi city where the Jews and Muslims live together in communal harmony. Visiting the site requires modest dressing and entry fee. The site is closed on Sabbath day i.e. Saturday.

  • One of the best place. Wasn't able to enter as it was Closed..but observed from outside very very neat and calm spiritual place.
