The old spice route of Muziris is the subject of the cover story for THE WEEK by Manira Nayar. The route was an early commerce route in Muziris's history, bringing prosperity and goods to the port. The Muziris Commerce route aided in forging economic ties with Western nations in the past.
The Muziris port served as the hub of the spice route, which connected Kerala with other countries throughout the world for more than two thousand years. Similar to the Silk Route, the "Spice Route" is a maritime commerce route that links various nations. By travelling these routes, the "Spice Route" hopes to connect with the past. The nation's connections to the Silk Route also include the Thalassery project, in addition to the Muziris historic project.
The world was altered by the Spice Route. The maps were revised. There have been newly discovered continents. India received the revolution on a silver platter. The hunt for spices might have given the Romans' food more flavour. But it also brought about a significant transformation in India. Tamarind, coffee, and cumin all arrived with the Portuguese, along with vinegar. Although relatively young until the 16th century, potatoes arrived with the Dutch or the Portuguese.
