Beemapalli Chandanakudam


Beema Palli is a mosque situated on the coast, nearly 5 kms south of Thiruvananthapuram city. The shrine is dedicated to Beema Beevi, a pious muslim lady believed to have divine powers.

The mosque is visited by devotees of all religions. The ten-day Chandanakudam Festival, which starts on the first of jama dul Akbar (March- April) of the Hijra year, attracts thousands of pilgrims.

The devotees bring earthen pots (kudams) filled with coins as offerings. These pots are coated with sandal wood paste (chandanam). Hence the name 'Chandanakudam'.
