It's an old synagogue located in camp area. The red colour makes it unique and distinctive from surrounding. Security is present 24/7 and a reservation is must for non Jews to visit from inside. Certainly an excellent piece of architecture worth a visit.

Ohel David Synagogue in Pune is the largest Jewish Synagogue outside of Israel. Nowadays non-Jews are not allowed inside. Nevertheless its a fine piece of architecture worth admiring it from outside.

Seemed to be a hit with visitors - but clearly the Jewish community has either dwindled or is non-existent. Still a nice, quiet and well maintained place of worship.
