Mishkal Mosque in Kozhikode is a historic monument that has a history of about 650 years. It is considered as an important cultural, historical and architectural monument in Kerala and is one of the oldest mosques in Malabar. This medieval mosque is named after Nakhooda Mishkal, an Arab trader and a shipowner. The major peculiarity of this mosque is that it is a four-storeyed structure which is supported by wooden pillars. The mosque has an extensive prayer hall which can accommodate about 300 people. Unlike other mosques, the Mishkal Mosque lacks copulas and minarets. The gopuram-style arches at the entrance of the mosque and the intricate carvings on its ceilings and walls resemble traditional temple architecture.
