Kanjiramattom Kodikuthu

The annual Festival of Kodikuthu is held that Kanjiramattom mosque. The ‘Chandanakudam’ ritual is the main event of the Kanjiramattom ‘Kodikuthu’ and is conducted on 14th January every year. Several caparisoned and ornamented elephants with Chendamaelam and folk performances add colour to the event. Traditional Muslim art forms like ‘Duff muttu’ and ‘Mappilapattu’ are also staged during the festival. These items are song and dance performances.

The Kanjiramattom Kodikuthu draws a large number of pilgrims and tourists from all over. People come dressed in their best attire to offer players in the Kanjiramattom mosque during this festive. It is not a purely Muslim festival and people of all religious backgrounds participate in it without discrimination. There is total communal harmony. At the ‘ Melepalli’ [ Upper Mosque], Hindu devotees pray and break coconuts. It is believed that ‘Vavar Swamy’, the contemporary and colleague of Sabarimala Sree Ayyappa Swamy stayed at ‘Melepally’.
