First Masjid in INDIA

These are pictures of the first masjid in India, in a place called Kodangallur in Kerala

 The story about this masjid is that the king of Kodangallur, Raja Rama Kulasekhara accepted Islam at the hands of the Sahabi of RasoolAllah (SAS), Malik Deenar (RA) who came here in 4 Hijri.
The king gave Malik Deenar (RA) and his companions land to build a masjid.
The masjid resembles a Kerala temple in construction and has a brass lamp for lighting.
Inside it has a mimbar and mihraab.
Just outside the main chamber are the graves of Malik Deenar’s son and his wife.
Malik Deenar (RA) left Kodangallur and went to Kasargod where he died and was buried.
His grave is in Kasargod.
 
This masjid is historic proof that Islam has been in India from 629 AD (4 Hijri) for 1376 years.
