Odathil Palli

Odathil Palli

A majestic monument in the heritage town of Thalassery constructed by Moosa Kakka of the Keyi family around 1806, it is one of the most oldest mosques in Kerala.

Moosa Kakka constructed it around 200 years ago in the sugarcane plantation or ‘Karimbin odam’ which formerly belonged to the Dutch East India Company. “Odam” means ‘garden’ in Dutch, and “Karimbu” means ‘sugarcane’ in Malayalam. The mosque came to be called Odathil Palli, meaning “Garden Mosque”, acclaimed for its architectural style usually seen on Kerala’s temples during that period with the structure devoid of any domes and minarets.

With its copper plate roofing, the abundant use of teak wood and numerous windows and golden finials, the three-storey mosque is the perfect example of the fine craftsmanship available in Kerala at the time. This edifice from the nineteenth century is a calming experience to the explorer who is interested in history and architecture.
