The award, sponsored by the Macau Government Tourism Office (MGTO), went to the Muziris Heritage Project for its conservational efforts, uniqueness and impact on local community. This award is in recognition of the Muziris project aimed at restoring the historical and cultural significance of the ancient town that stretches across North Paravur in Ernakulam to Kodungalloor in Thrissur. The flagship project of the government of Kerala is one of the biggest heritage conservation projects of modern India. Supported and sponsored by MGTO for the past 20 years, 2015's PATA Grand and Gold Awards recognise the achievements of 25 separate organisations and individuals. Being part of the Spice Route Project, which is supported by UNESCO, the Muziris project already has a key status on the cultural tourism map. The award further highlights its stature in international heritage tourism, he added. There were 269 entries from 83 organisations and individuals worldwide for this year's award, the highest tally since 2007.
