A noodle-thin street winding its way between Mattancherry Palace and the Jewish Synagogue, Jew Town is among the oldest spaces of the city that once hosted a blooming Jewish populace. The main attraction is the Paradesi Synagogue that was built in 1568. This imposing edifice is adorned with Belgian chandeliers that glow warmly. The floor of the synagogue is lined with willow-patterned and hand-painted tiles from China that are believed to be dating back to the 18th century. It is believed that the synagogue contains four scrolls of the Torah (First Five books of the Old Testament). These are encased in gold and silver chambers. Tourists can explore the Jew Town, a bustling street that is the best spot to stock up on unique handicrafts, fragrant spices and exquisite antiques.
