Cheraman Perumal was an Indian king, who legend has it, travelled to visit The Prophet during his lifetime. On the way back he died and his tomb is in Salala, Oman. He sent orders to build the mosque while he was away. Like all mosques, there are specific sections where women are not allowed entry. Avoid Prayer times and Fridays.

Contact the office near the Mosque to arrange a tour (nothing spectacular). Its worth a visit if you are into history.

This is the first Muslim Mosque in India , situated in the city on Kodungallur. Good that the authorities are maintaining the actual structure still.
