There are no clear records to prove when the first mosque in Thalassery was established. It is believed that this mosque is more than thosand years old. All historical records say that this mosque built in the Indo Saracan style was established when MallikDinar arrived in Kerala to spread Islam. The mosque has been rebuild several times.
The mosque was been maintained by the Vaniambalath Tharavad. Later a committee comprising Tata Moosa, P.P. Mammooty and C.T. Ummarkutty took over this responsibility.
