Jama Masjid
 

Located at Kuttichira, Jum-a Masjid locally known as Jama palli dates back to 14th century. This mosque is raised on a stepped pedestal and is enclosed by masonry walls and the entrance has slanting roofs. This single storied mosque has a largest floor area and could accommodate around 1000 worshippers at a time. The ceilings are adorned with complex wood carvings which resembles the ancient Kerala temple architectural style. The wooden walls inside the mosque are engraved with verses from sacred Arabic texts. In the month of April, a Nercha festival is celebrated here for four days. Tomb of The Malappuram Shaheed, whose brave exploits have been immortalized in the Mappila ballads, is located adjacent to this mosque.
