It is believed that the Khuthbha Mosque, also referred to as Khuthbhapalli, was built before the colonial times in Ponidcherry, around the 17th century, and is speculated to be the oldest mosque in Pondicherry. The mosque stands as a reminder of the long-standing religious diversity of the town. It was initially built at the present location of the Seventh Day School but under French rule, order for the mosque to be built in the Southern end of Pondicherry along with the shifting of the whole Muslim community was issued. The mosque is an important place of worship in Pondicherry and hosts regular prayers. The Dargah of Mollu Saiubu is part of the mosque.
