Magen David synagogue is an Orthodox Sephardi synagogue located in Byculla Mumbai. What I observed that this place need maintainance. I heard that this place is still there because of donations from abroad. This place is really calm and good.

I've been fortunate to visit the synagogue in 2013 and attend the reading of the Torah on the Sabbath. It was a great experience for me to witness how the few Indian Jews practiced their Jewish faith at this synagogue. Must visit for those who...More

I have not actually been to the Magen David Synagogue but I HAVE been to Mumbai's Kenneseth Eliyahoo Synagogue and recognize most of the photos that were posted here as images of Kenneseth Eliyahoo. That one is very close to the Prince of Wales Museum...More

This is a magnificent old synagogue that, regrettably has fallen in serious disrepair. It is hard to understand why the diaspora Jewish community, and especial the Sassoon Trust, does not find the money to repair this crumbling, priceless building. It is still worth a a...More

Mumbai has several synagogues, all struggling with very few members, they survive primarily on donations from abroad. This one is particularly well maintained, in part because it still runs its large school -- 98% of whose students are Muslims.

This is one of the larger synagogues in Mumbai and pretty famous too. It was built by the Sassoon family and is worth visiting if you are in the Nagpada area near Byculla.

This is a place to be moved by and spend time in. A place of Spirit and atmosphere. I came here on the morning of my 33rd birthday and sat reading the old Holy words and came away feeling peaceful.
