Pranab Mukherjee to inaugurate Muziris project on February 27

A special Muziris Heritage stamp will also be released.

Kochi: President Pranab Mukherjee will inaugurate the Phase I of the Muziris heritage project on February 27. Though the Phase II works have already been started, the first phase of the project is yet to be formally opened to the public.

The heritage tourism project’s first phase includes seven museums and four sites – two forts and two markets. During the inauguration of the project to be held at Kodungalloor, the President will also launch the website and mobile app of the Muziris project. A special Muziris Heritage stamp will also be released.

Meanwhile, there are allegations that the project is being inaugurated even when some of its constituent projects are far from complete. Representatives of Paliam Trust, which manages the Paliam museum and palace, have criticized the government for hasty inauguration without completing the maintenance and repair works of heritage sites.
