Jew Street

Fort Kochi in Ernakulam district is a historic place famed for its Jewish legacy.  It is believed that the erstwhile king of Kochi gave this land to the Cochin Jews in 1524. Mattancherry and Fort Kochi reflect the culture and customs of the Jewish community.

Jewish places of worship, such as the Paradesi Synagogue and the Kadavumbhagam Mattancherry Synagogue, a Jewish cemetery, are situated here. 

Jew Town or Jew Street is located between Mattancherry Palace and the Synagogue. The street is packed with shops that sell curio wood carvings, oil lamps, spice boxes, antique pieces and books on Indian subjects etc.
