ANCIENT KERALA ARCHITECTURE MOSQUE-The story of Islam in Kerala is a story of organic assimilation, best exemplified by the older mosques



A mosque in the Malabar Coast in the period 1919-1929. Note the traditional architecture very similar to any other structure in the region. The influx of money from the Gulf replaced these with the dome structure,  removing a big cultural legacy that was essentially a trademark of the integration of the Mappila community into the society in Kerala
