Cheraman Juma Masjid (Cheraman Mosque)

Cheraman Juma Masjid is an old mosque located at Kodungallur taluk of Thrissur district in Kerala. It is considered to be the first mosque in India and one of the oldest mosques in the world. Some believe that the mosque is built as early as AD 629 (very close to origins of Islam)! If true, this would make the mosque one of the important archeological buildings in India.
