"In the video clip on Muziris by BBC in their Youtube series titled ""The Story of India"", the history of Muziris is unveiled.

There were 40 or 50 ports trading with Rome on the west coast of India. The greatest was called Muziris,the first Emporium of India, as the Roman geographers called it. Everyone came here. The Apostle Thomas is supposed to have landed here in AD 50. The Syrian Christians have been here ever since. All the religions came here peacefully and stayed on the banks of the Periyar river. But Muziris itself had disappeared until now.''
