The Spice Route: A Historical Survey

Dr. Nasir Raza Khan
The spice routes were established around 3000 BCE and this was two thousand years before the Silk route was established. Spices were the most valued medicinal plants and were used for medicinal purposes during the ancient times. Spice route remained a major sea route for trade and grew in importance with the coming of Europeans in India. Spice route acted as a bridge for cultural and religious exchanges between different regions of the world. Languages such as Persian and Arabic were introduced in India as the contacts with central Asian region were established firmly through these trade routes. Sufism too, found its way to India through these trade routes.
