settlement dating from 1680 is known for its delectable mangoes and the
museum which houses the archaeological finds at GOUR and PANDUA. It

GAUR, capital to three dynasties of ancient Bengal—the Buddhists Palas, the

Historical relics of the 14th and 15th century Bengal particularly worth

Mausoleum, built at a princely cost of Rs one lakh.
