Miskhal Masjid

Mosque in Kozhikode (Calicut)

Around 2km southwest of Mananchira Sq, this 650-year-old mosque is an attractive (mostly) wooden four-storey building supported by impressive wooden pillars, topped by traditional sloping-tile roofs and painted in brilliant aquamarine, blue and white. It was partly rebuilt after being damaged by the Portuguese in 1510. Non-Muslims can admire the exterior only.
