Neat & Clean City

I came to the by train and left by flight so experienced both the major ways of visiting a place and both the ways were very good to experience as the railway station and the airport was good in terms of cleanliness. Roads were well maintained, people are calm and quite, weather was pleasant and food was close to nature. Visited a very big pond situated in the heart of the city and a park which is a symbol pride & heritage. Went for a long drive to the outskirts where I enjoyed the scenic beauty of tea cultivation. Overall a very soothing experience for me .

Fusion of diverse cultures

Tripura is surrounded on three sides by Bangladesh and also borders with Mizoram and Assam. There is a large population of Bengali immigrants and Assamese people in Tripura. Local Tripuri people account for 58 percent. Tripura was a princely state during the British rule but joined the Indian Union in 1949 after independence. Along with Meghalaya and Manipur Tripura was made a state in 1972. Tripura is now relatively peaceful and as of now ruled by the CPM. The literacy rate in Tripura is high at 94 percent. Besides presence of different ethnic and linguistic groups Tripura's culture also presents a fusion of organized religion and tribal beliefs. Agartala is the capital of Tripura and second largest city of the northeast after Guwahati. The Population of Agartala is around 5. 75 lakh. The city is located on the banks of river Haora very close to Bangladesh border. We stayed here for three days in Hotel Sonar Tori during November 24 - 26, 2017.
The most important tourist spot in the city is Ujjayanta Palace which was constructed by Maharaja Radha Kishore Manikya in 1901. The palace is surrounded by Maugham style gardens. Now part of the palace is converted into a state museum. There are many places of tourist attraction at short distances from Agartala. Neer Mahala situated in the middle of Rudrasagar Lake, Tripura Sundari the 15th century Shakti Peeth at Udaipur, Kamla Sagar and the Kali Temple on Bangladesh border are more popular with tourists. Sepahijala National Park is famous for Clouded Leopard. Beating Retreat ceremony at the Bangladesh border can be seen in the evening.
Taxis are not very expensive in Agartala. To be on the safer side it's better to hire outstation taxis through the hotel. It may cost a bit more but then it is safe and reliable. Sports shoes are better for excursion than formal shoes. Carrying some eatables like dry fruits or biscuits and packaged water along is a good idea. Street food should be avoided if you don't want to be taken ill during the journey. From the view point of shopping there is not much in Agartala except handicraft items made from bamboo trees.

Agartala Overview

Agartala is situated in the foothills of the Great Himalayas, in the north eastern part of India. Located in a belt of rich flora and fauna, the cultural and the state capital of Tripura is a laid back administrative centre.

Located in the western part of Tripura along the Haroa River, the city offers an opportunity to engage in sightseeing, recreation and adventure. Sprawling over an area of 59 sq km, Agartala is linked with NH-44 from Guwahati through Shillong.

Dating back to the reigns of Maharaja Krishna Manikya, the city became a prominent centre, when the ruler shifted his capital to Agartala in the 19th century. Another red-lettered event in the history of the city took place in 1940 when it was restructured into a planned civic centre under Maharaja Bir Bikram Manikya Bahadur. Due to this, the city is also referred to as the 'city of Bir Bikram Manikya Bahadur'.

Along with historical significance, Agartala is a foremost centre of commercial activities in the region, chiefly trading in rice, tea, jute and oil seeds. The city exhibits a blend of rich culture, diverse communities and regional tribes. As the Indo-Bangladesh border is 2 km from the city, the culture, behaviour and attitude are affected by Bengali culture and traditions.

The princely capital city of Agartala features testaments such as Ujjayanta Palace, Neermahal, State Museum and Kunjaban Palace, which provide a blend of history, religion and culture.

The city experiences subtropical climate with moderate rainfall round the year. Summers spanning from April to October are hot and wet, whereas the temperature remains moderate during the winter season. The ideal time to visit Agartala is from October to April.
