Beautiful and well maintained old Synagogue. Full of history. Not a lot of detailed context provided, but welcoming nonetheless. Closed Friday/Sat, opens 10am other days. Rs 5 entry fee. No photography allowed.
Street is worth a visit. Not much to see inside the synagogue , museum is worth a visit. Food is costly around the street since its a major tourist place around. Atmosphere is peaceful .roads are narrow for a drive. Parking will be an issue on a crowded day. But an important place to visit if you are into history. Police officers in duty are very friendly.
