Malbazar

Malbazar is a municipal town in Jalpaiguri district of North Bengal. It is one of the most important towns of Western Dooars area. Surrounded by Tea gardens and small villages on all sides, Malbazar acts as the academic, commercial and administrative centre of the surrounding area.

The town itself is not an important tourist destination. But there are important tourist attractions around including Gorumara, Samsing and Bindu Jhalong area. The Gorubathan area is also not very far. As a result many tourists prefer to base Malbazar and travel around.

The main attraction in the town is Mal Park adjacent to Malbazar tourist lodge. The well maintained park is worth a dekko.

History

Malbazar is one of the newer towns that grew after Independence of India. Pre Independence it was the hub of Tea business, but major migration happened after Independence when large number of people from Bangladesh came and settled here. The cultural diversity of Dooars can be seen in Malbazar with substantial population of Bengali, Adivashi, Rajbanshi and Nepali population living in harmony here though the majority population of town is Bengali.

Tourist Attractions

Most tourists visit Malbazar for tourist attractions in its surrounding area rather than the town itself. The Mal Udyan or Malbazar Park located on the highway next to the bus stand is a local attraction. The park has large garden and children’s play area.

The Bajrangbali Temple or Hanuman Temple is also a good place spend a couple of hours. Situated close to Caltex more, the large temple is a more recent addition to the attraction of the town.

Government operated Malbazar Tourist lodge is by far the best place to stay at Malbazar. However there are a number of private accommodations that have come up in the recent years. Most of them have sprung up on Barodighi area, which is adjacent to Neora river and Gorumara National Park.

Getting There

Malbazar is located on the National Highway connecting Bengal with Assam. It is also on rail map with a Broad gauge rail station on the NJP – Alipurduar route located here. Siliguri, which is the transport hub and the undeclared capital of the area, is just 55 kms and just over an hours drive away. Gorumara forest take about 30 minutes to reach from here.
