It is presumed to be the first mosque in India and is located around 35 kms from the city centre. Interestingly, it did not resemble the typical structure of mosques with domes & minarets until it received a facelift recently; rather it looked more like a traditional tharavadu of Kerala. The sight of hanging lamps is also another bizarre element, in contrast to the archetypal mosque structures. One can avail bus facilities at any time from the Shakthan bus stand, which is the nearby station and can be reached by foot.
There is an office just at the entrance for any sort of queries. Though the masjid has undergone renovation which is evident at first sight, the officials have made sure to keep some of the artifacts intact, like the doors, pulpit and lamp, which is of great significance. Apart from that, there is a museum adjacent to the masjid where the relics of the past are preserved and kept on display.
