Constructed in conventional Kerala style of architecture, the historic Malik Deenar Mosque is said to have been founded by Malik Ibn Deenar, believed to be one of the first Muslims to have come to India. The stunning structure, annually, plays host to a grand celebration to commemorate Deenar's and his first group of traders' arrival in India. Legend has it that Deenar and his 12 associates landed in India over 1,500 years ago, bringing the religion with them. The Malik Deenar Mosque was thus, constructed in 642 AD under the rule of Cheraman Perumal of the Western Ganga dynasty. The structure features intricate Arabic carvings on wooden beams and pillars, which are noteworthy. The mosque is thronged by crowds particularly during the celebration of the Urs Festival.
