Jama-at Mosque Malappuram

Jama-at Mosque,  600-year-old mosque, is an important pilgrim centre of the Muslims of Kerala and has given Ponnani the name, ‘Mecca of the East’. It is said that the mosque was designed by a Hindu carpenter for a Sufi Saint from Yemen. The carpenter died an untimely death during construction and was buried inside the mosque with all due respects.

The four-day annual festival at the mosque (nercha) is celebrated in April.

Adjoining the mosque is the mausoleum of the Malappuram Shaheeds (martyrs) whose brave exploits have been immortalised in the Mappila Ballads.
