Places to Visit in Malda
Gour - Once the capital of Bengal, and there are in total 5 different spots which can be seen. The original foot prints of Lord Mohammad are preserved here. The entire area is well preserved by ASI, but the road leading to Gour from Malda Town is in a pathetic state. Adina (Pandua) - A large mosque of the 16th century is build here and Tombs of various Muslim saints are visible here. Jagjivanpur - A Buddhist heritage site. Farakka Barrage - Down south of Malda Town is the famous Farakka Barrage, a famous picnic spot, but the view from the other side of the entire Dam will surely give you goosebums. Deer Park - Just accross the National Highway from Pandua is a well preserved Deer Park. This is controlled by the Forest Dept, and one can witness migratory birds during winter. Indo-Bangla Border - Malda Town is situated just 10 kms away from the international Border. Tourists can visit the area during day time, but with prior permission of the Border Security Force. Jouhra Kali Bari - A century old temple dedicated to Ma Kali. It is advisable to visit this temple with some time in hand, as the line to offer Puja gets pretty long.
