I have always wanted to visit this oldest mosque in India and I had the opportunity to visit this mosque recently. Close to Cochin Airport in Kodangallur. Impressed with its history. But the actual face has a new touch even though you find some of the old architecture intact inside the mosque. It is said that this mosque was built during Prophet Muhammad’s time. It has a small museum which I feel can be made an attraction to this part of India with more historical things and a proper display. Probably the history of the mosque could have been explained in detail with some art work. There is a replica of the actual mosque inside and I feel it could have been made better. Overall the mosque is a must if you are in Cochin. Congratulations to the management for the good work they are doing to preserve its glorious past.

The first and the oldest mosque in indian sub continent. The old style architecture building as seen in the replica kept in the museum cannot be seen now as in 70s it was surrounded by concrete structure. I was told as part of the Muzris project it will be restored to its original structure.

Cheraman Juma Masjid Mosque is considered to be the first mosque in India and was named Cheraman Juma Masjid in memory of Cheraman Perumal, the Chera King who went to Arabia and embraced Islam. In 629 AD a group of Arabs including Malik Bin Deenar and Malik Bin Habib came to India and constructed this mosque and named it Cheraman Juma Masjid. The Mosque is open to non muslims too and they bring oil to a an ancient lamp in the mosque. The Mosque was renovated later in 11th Century and is now a main tourist attraction near Kodungalloor. Many notable visitors like former Indian President APJ Kalam have visited the mosque.

I was simply amazed that this almost 1000 year old mosque was still standing. The original shape of this mosque had a flat roof, but some minerets were added a few years ago, to enhance the exterior of the mosque. Ladies were not allowed into the mosque, until quite recently, a tiny corner was allotted for them to visit to make supplications & perform their obligatory prayers. The mosque had a fresh coat of paint recently, and my Husband had been so fortunate to have prayed on a luxurious, thick carpet in the main prayer hall. This is a place not to be missed whether your'e a Muslim or aren't.
