About Odathil Mosque, Kannur
Initially owned by the Dutch as a sugarcane garden and later changed hands and went to the British East India Company, it is locally known as the Odathil Palli or the Garden Mosque. There was a man then called Musakaka who belonged to the Keyi Family of Thalaserry and worked for the British. He was very honest and trustworthy and thus loved by all. The British once decided to reward his honesty and loyalty and thus decided to gift him the sugar garden as his reward. It was him who constructed the mosque in ‘Karimbin Odam’ which means sugarcane plantation and thus the Mosque came to be known as the Odathil.
The temple had copper plate roofing with gold dome in minor. These are similar to the styles of Brahmonical tradition. There was opposition arising against the use of a gold dome as it was a privilege enjoyed by the Hindu temples. The king Zamorin granted permission for the gold dome which shows the high level of secularity. All Muslims can pray here and the adjoining crematorium can be used only by the people of the Keyi Family.
This is a place which is still used for worship and the domes are of gold and a copper alloy. There is a pretty garden adjoining the mosque as well. The best feature is the traditional Keralite architectural style. The temple is located in the heart of Tellicherry. It has three entrances all connected to the main roads.

In the heart of Thalassery stands the 200-year-old Odathil Palli and the Garden Mosque. The site of the Odathil Palli used to be a sugarcane garden of the Dutch. It changed hands to the British-owned East India Company. Moosakaka, a Muslim Keralite, was the contractor of the East India Company. Moosakaka hailed from the Keyi family of Thalassery. The Keyis were among the prominent traders of the time. Moosakaka was considered to be very honest and trustworthy. Hence, the company wanted to reward him for his loyalty. As per his request, he was given the Dutch sugar garden. Musakaka bought this land for a small price, as he did not want it free.
