Antique Sellers of Jew Street in Kochi

 

Jew Street will always tickle that nostalgic bone in you. As you stroll through these streets, there is always something that triggers a mellifluous trip down memory lane. You can choose from curios, antique pieces of crockery, carved wooden furniture, bronze and brass sculptures, remnants of traditional houses, and jewellery. The antique sellers love having a chat and keeping you informed about the origins of the items and their own shops. Their lives are colourful reminders of a once strong community whose numbers have dwindled considerably over the years. With its famous Paradesi Synagogue and Jew Street, Kochi is the best place in the State to experience the lifestyle and culture of the Jewish community in the sub-continent.
