Ruins of Gaur near Malda is great exhibition of historic architecture. There are so many structures and still excavations are going on for new discoveries. It suggests the rich historic background of the area. There lies mosques, gates, victory pillars and what not spread over a few kilometers of area dotted with Mango plantations.
You need to hire a cab from nearest town Malda in North Bengal which is around 30mins drive from Gaur. Best time to visit is from October to April. Summer months are hot.
There are signboards of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to describe the history of each place. Hence you can do it by yourself. We did not see any guide.
Better to carry your own food and water as no good shop available nearby. Only some village eateries are there for some basic needs. No toilets available. Needs improvement on these to attract more tourists.
