Jew Town

, Kochi

No photo available!
Jews came to the Kochi area as early as 700 BC because of trade. A tradition says that many Jews even settled in the area at the time of the ancient Jewish king, King Solomon. These 'black Jews' and 'white Jews', which came later, were so plentiful in the area, that the Hindu Raja granted them a site for their own town right next to Kochi. That town became known as "Jew Town".

Even though many Jews flocked to Israel, or were converted to Christianity, many Jews are still in the area. Located behind the Dutch Palace, the main attraction here is a very old Jew synagogue, which is still revered by Jews from all over the world.
