Kozhikode to get biggest mosque
Kozhikode in Kerala will soon have India’s largest mosque where 25,000-30,000 devotees can pray at a time. Estimated to be built at Rs 40 crore, the structure measuring 2.5 lakh square ft will push Delhi’s Jamia Masjid to second place when it takes shape. “The mosque is planned on a 12-acre plot. Eight acres will be set apart for a Mughal-style garden. The main structure will be confined to 4 acres,” Shaar-i-Mubarak Grand Masjid architect Riyaz Mohammed said.
