This mosque is often confused with the Old Kilararai Mosque. This mosque however, looks like an Indian temple. The mosque was completely rebuilt in the 11th century, and again in the 17th century by a workforce and materials provided by the erstwhile ruler of Ramnad and some by the Kilakarai merchants. So what remains today comes from the 17th century. There is no way to determine the original Qibla, nor the foundation of the original building. While many Muslims claim that it is a very early mosque, perhaps built by Malik lbn Dinar nothing exists to confirm this except local ledgend.
