Cochin Muziris Tour
Take a Guided Trip to the Heart of Muziris Town - a Popular Port Town of a Bygone Era!
Your tour starts with a visit to the Chennamangalam & Paravur Synagogues. These are the old synagogues of the Malabar Jews. Near the Chennamangalam synagogue is also the first Christian Seminary and the first printing press used in India. Next, we will visit the Kottakavu Church. This is a church of the Syrian Christian community of Kerala, believed to be one of the seven original churches established by the Apostle St. Thomas. Our next stop is the Paliam Palace and Museum. The residence of the Paliath Achan was home to the prime ministers of the Rajas of the State of Kochi. We will then head over to Pattanam, a small archaeological site which contains artifacts which were traded between the Muziris and the rest of the world. Afterward, enjoy a drive to the Handloom Weaving factory, a traditional cotton weaving village. Here you will learn how fabrics are traditionally woven and there is time for shopping. Our last stop is to the Kodungalloor Bhagavathi Temple before returning.
