Muziris Port Excursion
In 1341 AD, nature did one of the things she does best: create and destroy in one fell swoop. The port of Kodungallur, just north of Cochin, was destroyed when the Periyar River flooded, and in its place a new harbor was born.
Today the port of Muziris is a very important natural harbor and one of the finest on India’s west coast. This port has 2,000 year-old links to both Chinese and Arab sea traders and is rich in history both culturally and spiritually. The Jewish have been present in Cochin since 388 AD, and the Apostle Thomas brought Christianity to this area in 54 AD.
