Pandua

General Information

Gaur once alternated with Pandua as the seat of power. The main place of interest is the vast Adina Mosque, built by Sikander Shah in the 14th century. Built over a Hindu temple, traces of which are still evident, it was one of the largest mosques in India but is now in ruins. Nearby is the Eklakhi mausoleum, so called because it cost Rs 1 lakh to build. There are also several smaller mosques. The dusty deer park, 2.5km across the highway in the 'forest', is not worth going to.

Travel information

Pandua is on the main highway (NH34), 18km north of Malda, and there are mainly buses that can drop you here. The main sites are at Adina, two km north of the village of Pandua, and right by the highway.
