"Muziris is believed to have been that place where the oceanic cross-currents brought in a particular kind of syncretism, fuelled by the spice trade to become an crucial centre of the now-famous spice route. The Muziris Heritage Protect, also known as the 'Pattanam excavations', that began in 2007, has found conclusive evidence of what was once a flourishing trade port on the spice route.
