Organization Details

  • Organization Name:Malda Porichoy
  • About Organization:The first mention of Malda is found in Abul Fazl’s “Ain-i-Akbari” where ‘Maldah’ was mentioned as an important centre of trade. Malda is also believed to have occupied an eminent position in ancient India as belonging to the kingdom of Gouda under Sasanka. It was also a famous place under the Palas. King Gopala was the man of Barendra. Bakhtieyar Khalji made his headquarters at Gouda and established Muhammedan rule over the greater parts of northern and central Bengal, and attempted to subjugate Assam and Bhutan. The Pala dynasty began at about 740 A. D. and continued till the invasion of the Sena dynasty (about 1097 A. D.) The exploits of Pala and Sena kings are still present at Gouda Malda. Later Shamsud-din-Ilyas Shah (Haji Ilyas) transferred his capital to Pandua. Sikandar Shah, the eldest son of Haji Ilyas, succeeded his father on the throne, and ruled there for thirty years. He built the great Adina mosque at Pandua, 30 km away from the Malda town.
