Among the tourist attractions in Cooch Behar, what strikes first in our mind is the Rajbari or the palace of the Kings and the adjoining royal buildings as well as the endless royal facts & stories. In fact, being the place of the Raj (monarchy), the district captures the bygone glorious past in the moods of local people even today. The peace loving people of Cooch Behar even boast of this beautiful city where the Maharajas (kings) used to stay and never tires, if not laments in excitement, narrating the Raj stories.
The Madan Mohan Bari is a very important temple located in the middle of the town of Cooch Behar. The temple was constructed in between 1885 and 1889 by Maharaja Nripendra Narayan. Inside the
temple, deities of Ma Kali, temple, houses a beautiful pond and a magnificent gate in front of the pond. Lord Madan Mohan, Ma Bhavani and Ma Tara can be found. During the festival of Raas Jatra every year, the Raas Puja is performed along with the Raas Mela being held which is often considered one of the biggest North Bengal festivals.
Sagardighi is one of "Great Ponds" in the heart of Cooch Behar (Cooch Behar district), West Bengal, India. The name means an ocean-like pond, exaggerated in view of its great significance. As well as being popular with people, it also attracts migratory birds each winter.
