The vast Adina Mosque at Pandua, Malda, West Bengal was built in 1369 by Sikander Shah. It was one of the largest mosques in India, built over a Hindu temple, and has 378 small domes. Its impressive ruins attract tourists from all over the world.
This group of tourists were probably from Bangla Desh. They appeared to be traditional Muslims who were looking at the mosque with reverence in their gaze.

This is an interesting place. Very beautifully kept, with manicured garden. Your photo states well the sunny mood of the day.
I am beginning to fantasize, however, how would the enormous broken archway would look in a foggy winter morning before sunrise in only shades of gray....I would love to be there in such a morning or in an equally fogging winter evening

Saliil, Nice note and photo. I would have prefered a little sharpening. But, neverthless, good photo with real historic value. - Sunil
