"This is an article published in yesterday's Deccan Herald newspaper Kochi edition on the Muziris Heritage Project that will have 100 destinations for tourists. The Muziris Heritage Tourism Project by the state government, which is gaining momentum now, aims to establish the 3000-year-old legacy of Kerala and promote heritage tourism by taking visitors to historical places in the Kodungallur- North Paravur- Vypin belt. The first phase of the project is almost over and trial runs are taking place. It will surely be much more than a regular tourist spot.
Dr Venu, a civil servant and a pioneer of Kerala tourism, says, “It will throw light on the entry of the earliest forms of various religions to this place and the tolerance and mutual trust that existed then.” Agreeing with him is Dr Benny Kuriakose, the conservation consultant for Muziris Heritage Project. He says,“We wanted it to be sustainable tourism. It is a community-driven project, and hence the community has a say in it. The villages in the region are quite serene, and we didn’t want to disturb it.” Read the full feature here to know more details!"
