When companions of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) came to India from Arab, they started trading in the region. This was the first ever mosque built in India when the King Cheraman Purenmel embraced Islam after being influenced by good behavior and fair trade practices of those Muslims who came from Arab for trading.
This is must visit place due for muslims for historical reason, the place is around 30 KM from Kochi and easily accessible through taxi, buses etc.

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.
