Paradesi Synagogue
The Paradesi Synagogue was built in 1568 by descendants of Spanish, Dutch and other European Jews. It has served as a functioning synagogue throughout the centuries and preserves a unique record of Jewish presence in India. The Clock Tower was added later in 1760. After conservation is complete, it will become the public symbol of the synagogue
