The article published in Malayala Manorama newspaper explores the inauguration of phase I of the Muziris Heritage Project. The stages of the Muziris Project supervise the restoration and repair of buildings with a strong connection to Kerala's past, including churches, synagogues, marketplaces, palaces, mosques, and temples. "Hop on, Hop off" boats are arranged for the public to travel through the hidden heritage. The 'Hop On, Hop Off' journey is through three circuits of waterways, namely the Red, Green, and Violet. Since it is a circular service, one can spend as much time as they want at the destination of their choice. By the time the journey ends after passing the Sahodaran Ayyappan Memorial, Pallipuram Fort, Cheraman Islamic History Museum, Gothuruth, Paliyam History Museum, and Chendamangalam Jewish Synagogue, the 2,000-year-old history of Muziris will appear before your eyes like a screen.
The Muziris project was started in 2008. The ruins of a port city with a history of more than 2000 years were discovered during excavations in the town area, which paved the way for the heritage site.
