Beautiful historical structures from Gour in West Bengal India

Qadam Rasul Mosque, Gour, Malda
This post is in continuation to my earlier post on Gour a historical city in West Bengal houses some beautiful old monuments.

I am sharing some more beautiful historical structures from Gour.

Qadam Rasul Mosque : This beautiful structure dates back to 1531; the carvings on some of the bricks tells you how remarkable this structure must have looked in its prime.
