Malik Ibn Dinar Mosque

Malik Ibn Dinar Mosque The Juma Masjid of Kasargod, Malik Ibn Dinar Mosque is located in the heart of the town at Thalangara, 2kms away. Built in typical Kerala style of architecture, it is one of the most attractive and well-maintained mosques in the district which is believed to have been founded by Malik Ibn Dinar. Dinar was a missionary from Arabia who is credited with propagating Islam to the shores of Malabar. Of the 10 mosques built in Kasargod by Dinar and his followers, only this mosque survives today. The original mosque was a small structure with a thatched roof and later his followers constructed it as an elaborate structure. The mortal remains of Malik Dinar can be seen inside the mosque and some of the descendents of the prophet are also buried here.

The festival of Urs (Uroos), commemorating the death anniversary of Ibn Dinar is held here, once every three years with great pomp and gaiety. On this occasion, thousands of devotees throng the premise of the mosque to pay homage to their revered saint. Religious speeches are held and food and clothes are distributed among the pilgrims.
