24 Hours In… Mumbai.
Slide Nr 7
1:30pm, Kala Ghoda And The Blue Synagogue – Just across the road from the restaurant is the gorgeous Knesset Eliyahoo, or “Blue Synagogue”. The 135-year-old structure – restored after the terrorist attacks of 26 November 2008, and renovated again this past year – was recently reopened to public; for the first time ever, non-Jews can actually participate in the prayer service. Apart from the synagogue, Kala Ghoda itself is one of the city’s art hubs and home to some of Mumbai’s most creative designer boutiques. (Must visit: Artisans’, Ogaan, Nicobar) However, unless you want to spend the rest of the day shopping, I’d suggest simply strolling around to get a feel of the place, then head on foot to our next destination… [Photo: Reuben Strayer/Wikimedia Commons]
