One of the oldest mosques in the Malabar region, the Mishkal mosque is one of Kerala’s most important cultural, historical and architectural monuments. Located in Kozhikode’s Kuttichira area, the mosque is named after its builder – a rich Arab trader of the 14th century called Nakhooda Mishkal. Typical of old Malabar mosques, it has no cupolas and minarets, and it uses a lot of timber for its construction. Certain historians claim that the old mosques of Kerala were influenced by local Hindu temple architecture. It is a mainstay in many Malabar tours
Originally of five stories, the mosque was partially burned during a Portuguese attack in 1510. The top floor still bears signs of that damage.
