The Masjid is suppose to be one of the oldest in the country. The place is around 35kms from the Thrissur. One can take limited stop bus from saktan bus stand, which is less than a km away from the railway station. The bus normally an hour or more to cover the distance. One need not go till kodangallur bus stand but just some 5 kms before the kodangallur get down and take a bus heading to puduyur. It is slightly more than a 2 kms and the bus stops just outside the masjid.
There is an office just at the entrance.
Though the masjid has undergone renovation which is evident but still some of the artefacts are intact, Like the doors, pulpit, lamp etc are major attraction. One can definitely have a closer look, just ensure atleast feet are washed before entering as people pray on the spreads of the masjid.
There is a museum adjacent to the masjid one can see some old time items on display though not many. There is a museum caretaker who charges entry fee and gives a peek into the collection. Further a brochure is available with more details of the masjid on payable basis.
There is a grave yard and water well within the compound. Typical of the this grave yard is that the marking stones are placed on both the head and feet. Whereas in most of the other place as a practice it is just on the head side.
