Malappuram is a small town. The Jamaat Mosque here is a master-piece in architecture. Built in temple style architecture, the mosque is 280 years old. The royal family, Hindu Prana Nambi family, had once usurped the property of Muslims. Soon they flattered with incurable diseases. An astrologer marked out the cause and advised to construct a mosque in repentance. The mosque thus built by a Hindu took the style of temple which happened to be everybody’s attraction.
