Well, I have visited Malda for the first time without having any experience and guidance. I must tell you this is an amazing city in respect to history, culture and people. Majorly there are two side of attraction in Malda. 1. Gour 2. Pandua From Malda town, Gour is about 17 km in South direction and Pandua is around 19 km North from Malda by NH exact opposite side of Gour.
Form Rathbari to Susthani more is around 6 km through NH. Once you take left towards Gour from Susthani more you will start feeling refreshed. Road condition is good now and both side of the road you will find the greenary, paddy field, mangoes field, fishery pond, village hut, birds, fog, fresh breathe and many more. Seriously it will give you the welcome notes to make your entry memorable.
While moving towards Pandua you have to cross Mahananda river through NH. Visiting spot of Pandua starts with Pandua masjid, then Eklakhi Tomb Qutub Shahi Mosque or Choto sona masjid, Adina or Jami masjid, Adina forest respectively. Each and every place is so amazing and well maintained by the govt. and the archaeological value of the place is so high. Perfect place for photography.
Points to remember
Well Chiranjeeb Sarkar is well known tourist guide as well as auto driver who is known as 'Kalu da' in his auto stand in Rathbari More. He is trained and doing this service for 30 years. His contact no is +91 8670908052. The reason I will mention and refer his name is very accurate. There will be many other drivers you will find, may be i don't know them as a tourist guide, but he is a person who will assure and value you as a tourist. He will guide you every way possible, he won't leave a single place but will be eager to make you visit some places extra. More over he will give you time and walk with you in every place, will communicate with you now and then. Of course he will guide you with hotels and sweet shops also.
