Malik Ibn Dinar, a traveller and scholar from Persia, is believed to have built the mosque.

One of the earliest mosques constructed in Malabar in the typical Kerala style, the elegant Malik Ibn Dinar Mosque at Thalangara in Kasaragod district is well-maintained. Malik Ibn Dinar, a traveller and scholar from Persia, is believed to have built the mosque. Earlier, it was a simple structure with a thatched roof. Now it has two floors and huge columns.

Everyone who visits this place is fascinated by its stunning architecture and peaceful environment. The mosque celebrates Malik Ibn Dinar's arrival to the country with an annual ceremony. Dinar was an Arabian missionary who is credited with spreading Islam to the Malabar coast. The festival of Urs (Uroos), which honours the anniversary of Ibn Dinar's passing, is celebrated once every three years.

The mosque has undergone many renovations and now has three blocks, but the central one has been retained in its original glory. One has to go through the railway overbridge to reach the second gate from the first as the station is only 1 km away. A beautiful resting area has been created for visitors with a splendid view of the sea where the Chandragiri river meets the sea, to enjoy the moment in the calming breeze.
