A small synagogue, very charming, a little dilapidated but with some interesting details like its lovely tiled flooring. It is a quick peek into Jew history in Cochin. Worth a visit.

Small place with pictures and wall piece depicting Jew rule in Cochin. One small church with old carvings and items. Nothing else

I didnt see anything interesting here. No photos no nothing. No noise, and I am not sure if they needed to collect the entrance fees. There is nothing more to comment.
