Kanjiramattom Mosque

Kanjiramattom Mosque, about 25 km southeast of Kochi city, is built in memory of Saint Sheikh Fariduddin. The quaint ambience of the mosque is enhanced by the mazhars and dargahs. 

The famous annual event here is the Kanjiramattom Kodikuthu which falls in the month of January. A ritual called chandanakkudam (literally, sandalwood pot) is conducted as part of the event to honour Saint Fariduddin. Pilgrims carry pots covered with sandalwood paste and walk in procession to the temple. Caparisoned elephants and Muslim folk art forms like the Duffmuttu and Kolkali are also part of the event.
