The unexpected rain on Tuesday is likely to upset the plans of Britain’s Prince Charles and wife Camilla Parker Bowles’ visit to Mattanchery Synagogue scheduled for Thursday.

The rain has messed up the road leading to the Synagogue, located amidst a maze of cultural and handicraft shops. However, if the weather improves on Wednesday, the authorities are hopeful that all will be fine for the  British royal couple’s visit to the site on Thursday morning.

“The Synagogue has been spruced up for the visit. Sufficient police personnel will also be deployed,” the officials said. The Prince and Duchess will also receive the Jewish blessing.  The Kochi Corporation has trimmed the area around the Mattanchery Synagogue that was lying waste. “The Corporation is trying to arrange another way for the royal couple to enter the Synagogue in such a way that they can keep off the entrance through the maze of shops. The route will be ready within a day,” the officials said.

After spending at least half an hour at the  the synagogue, they will visit four shops in the area - of antique, garment and other ethnic products which are being sold by people of different origin.

The couple will also visit the Museum Palace.
