Paradesi Synagogue - Review
The Paradesi Synagogue, in a corner of Jew Town, is more than a hundred years old and houses many rare antiques. The synagogue, that woos many visitors, adds to the quaint charm of Mattancherry. The word Paradesi means foreigner in many Indian languages. It refers to the White Jews - A mixture of Jews from Kodungalloor, Middle East and Europe. Enter the synagogue and the large main hall arrests your attention with display of rare antique objects that add to the grandeur of the place. The light falling through the large open windows make the sight of chandeliers and lamps more delightful. These glass chandeliers dangling from the ceiling belong to the 19th century and were imported from Belgium.

Paradesi Synagogue, Kochi Reviews
Beautiful synagogue with awe-inspiring interiors and a tiny museum - few paintings and clicks showing history of Jew connection with India. The long stretch of road leading upto the place is a shoppers paradise. Only beware of the over-desperate shopkeepers who refuse to acknowledge difference between being friendly and cat-calling!
A great experience. Synagogue shares years of historical values, the proof of Jewish tradition, culture and a divine touch. I am very glad that I saw the history with my own eyes.
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!
It was a very quite, peaceful place. The presence of peace of definitely felt here. And the history of this place is just amazing and one should definitely visit this place.
A scheduled place. A quiet path. When we get inside the synagogue we can feel something different a kind of different vibe. When you get inside try tio sit there quietly for some time,you will feel peaceful.
