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.
