Neglected Gem!

Hidden away form the hustles of the city. Neglected by the tourists, but well preserved the historians and locals. The fine terracotta curvings in its walls are mesmerizing.

Chika Masjid – Mosque in Malda
avr. 2019 • En famille
Gaur, also known as Gauda and Gour is the erstwhile administrative center of Bengal. The city that served as the capital of Bengal between the 12th and 16th centuries is established in Malda district in the Northen zone of the Indian state in West Bengal. Today, Gaur prevails as a wrecked city and the actual proof regarding the era that existed centuries back.

The place is imposing and lawns are pretty well maintained but it is also infested with Bats so be careful when you take a walking tour.

Chika Mosque or Chamkati Mosque is one of the famous medieval monuments of Malda. The mosque derives its name from 'chika' or bats since it shelters bats. The dome of the mosque is huge. There are no entry fees and food stalls nearby.

Shelter for large number of chikas or bats.

The Chika Mosque was built in 1475 by Sultan Yusuf Shah located in Gour, Malda in West Bengal, India. The name originated from the fact that it used to shelter a large number of chikas, or bats. It is a single-domed edifice, almost in ruins now. The beautifully ornate carvings on the walls and the images of Hindu idols on the stonework of doors and lintels are still partly visible. It has the images of Hindu Idols on the stonework of doors which are still partly visible.

Hasn't changed a bit
mai 2017 • En famille
Visited this place almost a year after. Its pretty much the same. And as was seen last year, there are no shops or anything nearby. I really don't understand places like this that have been proclaimed historical sites by the archaeological survey of India should soon turn into a centre of attraction with a full fledged business growing around it. And see this place, not even a water bottle is available to buy anywhere nearby.

Big dome
août 2016 • Entre amis
Its a big dome shaped mosque with nothing inside. There are 4 doors on 4 sides, the doors are really narrow. The wall is so thick that even in the scorching heat outside it felt like ac inside. Ppl say that initially it was a jail for prisoners, as light is almost impenetrable. Later it was turned into a mosque.

Just ok

This is a single domed brick structure, called as Mosque. But it is evidently a Mausoleum architecturally similar to Eklakhi Mausoleum at Pandua, besides there is no mihrab in it. It perhaps served the purpose of the tomb of Sultan Jalaluddin Muhammad (1415-31). It was possibly built in c.15th century AD (as per ASI)

Chika Mosque
déc. 2012 • En famille
Chika Mosque is situated in Gour near the border of Bangladesh and is in short distance to the south -west to Qadam Rasul. It is a single domed building and is locally called "CHIKA" due to the fact that long after desertation and destruction of the then Gaur city, it was infested by bats(locally called as :CHIKA).Use of materials from old Hindu temples is evident.As stated it was probably used as a prison by Sultan Hussain Shah(1493-1519 A.D).
