Harmony Park (Jewish Cemetery)

There are cemeteries associated with the Synagogues in the Muziris region, important among them is the one in Kottayil Kovilakam, near the Chendamangalam synagogue. Chendamangalam, under the Paliath Achans, was a model of religious tolerance. It is one of the unique places in India where places of worship from the four major religions, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Judaism exist within a short distance of each other. According to Jewish belief, the dead rests in the cemetery. So till the resurrection day the graves should be protected, thus goes their belief.
