Events which changed history of Kerala .. Vasco's arrival ..

Vasco arriving at the sea coast at Kappad near Calicut in 1498 AD ..

Vasco De Gama presenting the letter from King of Portugal to Zamorin of Calicut.

This paved the way for other Western forces to enter India, namely the Dutch, English and French who conquered and ruled over parts of India till around 1947 - 1962 AD.

We are overcoming the harmful effects of this invasion now ...
