About Knesset Eliyahoo Synagogue

A Jewish Center and a famous place of interest in Mumbai, Knesset Eliyahoo Synagogue is a house of prayer established in 1884 by Jacob Elias Sassoon and his brothers to honor their father, Eliyahoo Sassoon. Celebrated architects, Gostling and Morris, designed the structure, which was painted in light blue color the first time it was built. Why this place holds a special place as a tourist hotspot in Mumbai is because Giani Zail Singh, the former President of India, visited the synagogue in 1985 as a mark of the 100th-anniversary celebration of the place. It was on this day that the Indian Post Office issued a stamp to commemorate the centennial anniversary of Eliyahoo Synagogue. A coveted Jewish established, this site of worship is of Sephardic Rite and will sure be different from any invocation experience you've ever had.
