About Tripura

Tripura

Located in the northeast of India, the small state of Tripura is surrounded on the north, west and south by Bangladesh, with Assam and Mizoram to its east. The state consists of low hills, going up to about 3000 feet, and plains, where most of the population lives. Agriculture is the main occupation and rice, the main crop. Tripura is also the second highest rubber-producing state in India after Kerala. Industry and urbanization, however, is not well developed here. Tripura has tribes such as the Tripuris, Reangs, Jamatia, Noatias, and Halams. However, 70% of the population is of Bengali origin.

 

Before merging with India in 1949, Tripura was an independent kingdom that had been ruled by the Manikya dynasty for centuries. Their capital was at Udaipur, on the banks of River Gomati. Today, their ruined palace on the Gomati and the more famous Neermahal Palace on the Rudrasagar Lake can be seen. Neermahal, built in 1930, is the only Lake Palace in eastern India. Udaipur has many lakes and typically round roofed, 'Bengali-hut' style temples. The Mother Goddess of Tipurasundari, is worshipped here .

 

The capital Agartala is a small town with a domestic airport connected to Kolkata and Guwahati. It is connected by road to Guwahati and Shillong. It has the Ujjayanta Palace built by King Radha Kishore Manikya in 1901. A noted 16th-century Kali temple set besides the Kamlasagar Lake is 27 kms from Agartala.

 

Known popularly as the orange basket of Tripura, Jampui Hills is a hill station 3,000 feet above sea level, 250 km from Agartala. It is inhabited by the Lushai and Reang tribes, who almost entirely live on orange cultivation. Stone and rock-cut images belonging to 7th - 9th centuries can be seen at Unakoti.

"Lush green valley with a small stream trickling"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Oct 13, 2015
The place is un-polluted with very few people visiting. There are carvings on the rock which are 800 years old. The setting is on a lush green valley with a small stream trickling through. We were amazed and flattened by the setting. We soaked in the ambiance for around 1 hour and started for the return journey. We reached Agartala around 5 pm. We feel that this place should be at par with Ellora or Dilwara temples and is worth taking 9-10 hours of journey. It is indeed remote and quite costly. We were charged Rs. 4000/- for this trip, which is on the steeper side. I would advice travelers to carry food, water and plan the return in such a way that the hills are crossed when there is daylight.

"Beautiful Tripura"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Aug 14, 2014
It was a nice experience to visit the wild greenery of Tripura. Full of natural resources. Nice people. A must visit place. Recommended place: Sipahijala, Trishna Sanctuary. You can also enjoy the driving in hilly way. Neermahal is a must see, which is located at Melagarh, 56 KM distance from capital Agartala. Pilak can be seen for ancient Tripura.
