Kanjiramattom Mosque, Kochi

The mosque is situated at Kanjiramattom, 30 km from Kochi. It is believed that the mosque was erected over the mortal remains of a Muslim saint, Sheikh Parid. Another great Muslim saint, Baver is supposed to have prayed here and attained salvation. The Kodikuthu festival, which falls in December-January, is a major attraction for thousands of devotees.

A huge procession is held in the night, when the pilgrims carrying pots of sandalwood paste proceed to the mosque as part of a ritual called as ' Chandanakkudam'. Six caparisoned elephants and folk performances are the main attractions of the procession. Traditional Muslim art forms like 'Oppana' and 'Mappilappattu' are also staged during the festival.
