About Pattanam 
[Edit]  
Pattanam is a small village, eight km south of Kodungallur and twenty-five km north of Kochi in Ernakulam District in the southern Indian state of Kerala in the Chittattukara Panchayat on the northern shore of Paravur thodu, a branch of Periyar River. Recent archaeological excavations indicate that this village site could be part of the ancient and long lost port city of Muziris/Muciri, which is referred to by Greek-Latin and Indian classical sources as far back as 2000 years ago. It is now believed that the name Pattanam (which is derived from prakrit meaning port or commercial centre) is the abbreviation of what was originally Musiripattanam, the local name of Muziris.
