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.

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...More
