The stone inscription found in Maccunti Mosque at Kuttichira, reveals
an interesting aspect in the history of the Zamorins of Kozhikode
and their patronage of Islam in Kerala. The architecture of this
ancient mosque bears great resemblance to the typical temple complex
with pillars, ventilators and huge tank.
This temple, which is associated with the heroes and heroines of
the Vadakkanpattu, combines an arresting simplicity and a legendary
aura. The candid murals and carvings are a delight for art lovers.
Built by Swamy Thirumudpad, a Zamorin, in the 14th century, within
the palace complex, this temple was the venue of Revathy Pattathanam,
the annual cultural festival and intellectual event at the Zamorins
