Explore the evolution of Mumbai's longstanding Jewish heritage during this memorable, half-day excursion. Depart the pier for a scenic 30-minute drive through the city, passing the Gateway of India en route. Your first stop is at the magnificent Keneseth Eliyahoo Synagogue, built in 1884 by Sir Jacob Sassoon. This splendid structure features an interior with decorated pillars and beautifully carved wooden doors. Drive past the impressive Gothic-style David Sassoon Library, constructed in 1847 and one of Mumbai's largest libraries. Your next stop is the impressive Magen David Synagogue—the first Baghdadi Synagogue constructed in Mumbai and the largest synagogue in Asia. Your tour concludes with a visit to the historic Tiphereth Synagogue, built in 1886. During the drive back to the pier, you’ll pass by the Institute of Science, designed by Sir George Wittet in 1925 and funded by Sir Jacob Sassoon. Stop for photos at the legendary and lively dhobi ghat, where you can observe clothes being washed in a time-honored manner.
