As part of the Muziris Heritage Project, the historic Kottappuram Market was renovated. The facades of more than 150 shops have been changed, the pathways done and the waterfront was also landscaped. There is a boat jetty too for the visitors to arrive by boat. This would not have been possible if the local traders and residents have not supported this project. Lot more to be done including improving the infrastructure. Hope that this will be part of the Second Phase of the Muziris Heritage Project. Thanks to my team especially the work done by Ayeesha Sadique Aslem and Lakshmi Babu Sharon.
