Finally got to see the synagogue. It was a historic place. Had gone there twice but it was closed. This was our third time and we were lucky. Can see a different way of worship.

Situated in the lanes of Jew town. Nothing extraordinary. Small building. Quiet and peaceful place. Does not need much time to be covered. Kids will get bored. Architecture of the synagogue was very simple.
