One of the first brick tombs in Bengal
Feb 2020
Eklakhi Mausoleum was built in 1425. One tomb is believed to be that of Sultan Jalaluddin Muhammad Shah, the other two of his wife and son Shamsuddin Ahmad Shah. He was the first native Muslim king of Bengal and the last Sultan of Bengal to rule from Pandua.
It is very unusual that over the entrance arch and at the bottom of the arch there are traces of Hindu gods, in particular the god Ganesha!

Tomb for a king
Sep 2018 • Friends
From Malda take the national highway going towards Siliguri and at around 30 km this place is found.

The Gour circuit is Bardaouri Mosaque, Dakhil Darwaza, Firoz Minar, Gumti Darwaza and Kotwali Darwaza.

This one is Eklakhi Mausoleum, Qutub Shahi Mosque and Adina Mosque or Jami Masjid.

Eklakhi and Qutub shahi are neighbouring structures and right in the middle of the village.

Eklakhi is a tomb which has three people buried and Qutub Shahi is a durbar of a saint with a stone throne with a flight of stairs.

It’s lawns are well maintained.

Eklakhi still has its roof/dome whereas the Qutub shahi has lost it.

Hardly any tourists, if at all somebody comes to see it, it is only the locals on a curiosity visit or on a pilgrim circuit.

No shops, no water, no snacks, no toilet, no security, no entry ticket.

Like in Gour they have installed Bose outdoor speakers in the lawns.

One of the most elegant monument in Pandua
Apr 2017 • Family
Eklakhi Mausoleum is the tomb of sultan Jalaluddin Muhammad Shah . It is one of the most elegant monument in Pandua , Malda in West Bengal, India.. One of the first square brick tombs in Bengal, with a carved Ganesh on the doorway, This tomb made by bricks and terracotta. ASI is taking care of this, but there is no entry fees & no security/ guard to look after. If these way is going on, one day this will be distroied.

Tomb of Jalal uddin
Aug 2016 • Friends
The eklakhi mosque is believed to be the tomb of Sultan Jalal-ud-din, a hindu raja who later converted to muslim. Brick walls are much the same as most of the other monuments nearby. The 4 pillars in the 4 corners have certain carvings though. Good for a visit once.

Nice structure
May 2015 • Business
This brick built Mausoleum is the most beautiful building in this place. It forms a square roofed by a dome with a small turret at each corner. The inside plan of the structure is octagonal. The walls are exquisitely ornamented in the outer part by carved tiles and decorative motifs on bricks. Tradition runs that this construction cost 1 lakh rupees so the name. Amongst the three graves inside, one is regarded as tomb of Sultan Jalaluddin, son of Raja Kans, the other two of his wife and son Ahmad Shah. There is divergence of opinion among scholars about the identification and orientation of the graves. This structure was probably built in the early c.15th century AD (as per ASI).
