Paradesi Synagogue, Kochi Reviews - Write a Review
Well maintained historical place,has great architecture ,has a special vibe to the area The downside to the place is the restricted entry to the place , people coming in cars can face the potential challenge to park their car.the sellers around the place might be a little steep in their prices... Sometimes the smell around the place can be a little off putting as it is fairly close to the harbour..
Temple entrance fees is there..... all shops located here are robbers. They cost price of towel 350 rps and hanky cost is 650 rps and when ask for bill they make bill of 1500rps for both towel and hanky.they do story for poor and widow very good and all shops have much pics to show with rich people's before sell their products. So for shopping purpose it's worst experience and wastage of time.same towel I buy from other place in kochi just in 250rps which they do bill of 1500rps.....
It's located in Jew town kochi. Vehicle entry restricted in the street which this synagogue located. Pictures in the walls depict the Jewish connection with Kochi. Five rupees entrance ticket. Photography prohibited inside this place
Loved it great historical place. Clean streets leading to the jewish synagogue. Great antique shops also in the Street
A nice clean and historic place. The history of the synagogue and the Jews in Kochi is also described with images. Closed for public on Fridays and Saturdays.
