Pattanam is 11 kilometres away from Kodungallur, where children have been collecting 2000-year-old beads for generations. The forts of Kottappuram and Pallipurram remind tourists of the rich history that this land is proof of. Renowned for the warmth and hospitality among the traders of yesteryear, Muziris became religiously symbiotic. Today, a tourist will find himself looking at an ancient Hindu temple dedicated to Goddess Mahakali, in the same vicinity as the Cherman Juma Masjid, a Jewish synagogue and the Marthoma Church in Azhikode village. The Muziris Heritage Project has numerous museums and boat services, which can be booked by clicking here.
