Nestled in the midst of Kochi is a beautiful quaint market. Very clean and beautiful. Reminded me of the old town of Geneva!! I happened to find a lovely hand embroidery shop called Sarah hand Embroidery. It is indeed an interesting place to visit. They have maintained it as Sarah had done many years ago. Sarah is no more but her legacy lives on . They make exquisite hand made tatting laces, petit point , cross stitch and many other forms of hand embroidered goods for the home. They have many stories to share. A must visit if you are planning to visit Kochi .

Small lanes with art shops coffee houses and of course the synagogue with the Dutch palace next door. Both are worth a visit. Lots of interesting shops for curios wood work paintings and a couple of artsy coffee shops. Have a cuppa at the ginger hotel on the waterfront.

We had gone with our family. The streets are narrow. Parking spaces are few. There are lots of shops selling antiques. The synagogue was beautiful.

Historic Jew Town, the heart of the once-thriving Cochin Jewish community, India’s Jews have a long history in this part of the world, reputedly first arriving as the descendants of traders from the time of King Solomon’s reign (circa 970 to 931 BC) and landing in present-day Kodungallur, 47km to the north.pon arriving in Jew Town, I headed straight to Synagogue Lane, the main thoroughfare, expecting to find rows of vibrant Jewish shops and synagogues. The place felt like a living museum: indeed services are held only when there is a minyan (a group of 10 men needed to form a prayer service), now only possible with the inclusion of Jewish male visitors. So the beautiful synagogue is usually empty, save for the tourists who come to marvel at its beauty.location, as is the sign from the original Kochangadi Synagogue on the temple’s outer wall that reads that the temple was built in the Hebrew year of 5105 as “an abode for the spirit of God”.After visiting this incredible town and witnessing the harmony between all faiths, it seems that: “for all religions” should be added.
