A tiny outpost of Jewish life, hanging on by its finger nails. Very small, aging jewish population sustaining the 16th century artifact and Jewish life. Could do with an updating of the displays depicting the history. There are some fascinating facts relating to Jewish presence...More

The synagogue is a marvellous piece of history. It has a beautiful interior with Dutch floor tiles and many glass chandeliers.

A great synagogue full with history. The history room is very small and it can get very packed at times. Unfortunately, they just kept letting people inside of the temple without much of a crowd control. NO PHOTOGRAPHY!

Worth a visit. Very peaceful place with an interesting history. No photography allowed inside area or synagogue. Worth paying small amount for history leaflet.

I attended services here, and came back during the week to explore their museum. Rich in history and artifacts. I had never known about Jews in India so it was a great learning experience.

Synagogue is not a type of "must visit places". There's nothing very impressive about it, just an old jewish synagogue. Maybe you can learn some history if you book a guided tour, I don't know. Althought OK.

sorry Allen, only just saw this question. The congregation is very small now and mostly elderly so I am not sure if social media is an option. May I suggest that you contact the Kochi tourist office? I am sorry that I cannot... More
