The Cabinet's approval of the Muziris Heritage Project is covered in The Hindu article written by K P M Basheer. The State Cabinet's acceptance of the Muziris Historical Site has enabled the project to get over a significant obstacle. The Muziris Project seeks to protect the old port's historical and cultural landmarks. It is the cultural preservation-cum-tourism initiative that focuses on the alleged location of Kodungalloor's old Muziris port.

The port, which existed from a few decades before Christ to the fourteenth century, was a significant economic hub with connections to the Mediterranean, China, Arabia, and ancient Rome. Numerous pieces of evidence indicating the port's importance have been discovered during the continuing excavations at Pattanam."
