Kerala: Malabar Coast & “The Spice Route”
Kerala, Gods own country and the land of Coconut palms. This tropical paradise; known for ages as the Malabar Coast, cradled between the mountains and the Arabian sea; where the sun, the soil, the rain and the wind creates the best coconuts on earth. It is no wonder that travelers came from the East and West to trade with Malabar since 3000 BC for the treasures of natures’ bounty through a maritime route popularly known as “The Spice Route”. The Malabar coast offered its precious treasures, her best products to the world; the Greeks, Romans, Phoenicians, Arabs, Vikings, Portuguese, Dutch, English and the whole lot of adventurous seamen braved the tumultuous oceans to buy ivory, teakwood, rosewood, sandalwood, pepper, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, cloves, turmeric, cinnamon, coconut, arecanut, coconut oil and any other a tropical paradise has to offer.
We are blessed to be located in this geographical region of Malabar in Kerala which has the unique heritage of being the gateway to world’s trade in tropical products for thousands of years through “The Spice Route” whose most important port city the Muziris is in our close proximity.
