Thank you rocksea, Jina!

rocksea, it is very near to the Synagogue. In fact, just around 5 minutes walk on the same road, but in the direction away from the synagogue. Unfortunately, most people are not aware of its existence as it is a bit isolated from the tourist hustle and bustle around the Synagogue. Most tourists miss this spot.
