Jew Town Travel

Jews came to the Kochi area as early as 700 BC because of trade. A tradition says that many Jews even settled in the area at the time of the ancient Jewish king, King Solomon.

These “black Jews‿ and then later “white Jews‿ were so plentiful in the area, that the Hindu Raja granted them a site for their own town right next to Kochi. That town became known as "Jew Town". Even though many Jews locked to Israel, or were converted to Christianity, many Jews are still in the area. A Jewish synagogue is found in Jew Town that is definitely worth the time to explore.
