High on a rock in Beruwala
, tall, white and towering, surrounded by coconut fronds, stands Ketchimalai mosque
. The ancient historic site has been a place of reflection and prayer for centuries, calling unto it every year, scores of pilgrims from all over the island. As Muslims commence the holy month of Ramadan
, the Nation took a trip to the mosque, to learn more of its history and discover intimately, the awe-inspiring beauty of this religious site.
