"The article published in the Hindu by S.Anandan goes into detail about the fast track plan of the Muziris Restoration Project. Initiated by the Department of Tourism, the project is the largest heritage conservation project in India as well as the first green project in Kerala. Officials are back on the Muziris trail, seeking to revive an old dream that lay comatose in the past few years.
As a first step, a working team of project consultants and officials is visiting the Muziris Region, putting to technical scrutiny each site that’s up and running for the upgrade as originally envisaged, besides surveying new sites for making it a participatory conservation tourism initiative with renewed thrust on cultural research and learning.

The team scouting around the sites has drawn up a host of alterations and additions to reinstate the original plan. Read the full story here to know more details!"
