Ujjayanta Palace, Agartala


Tripura's indisputable leading site and centerpiece is the Ujjayanta palace. This royal residence of the Manikya kings is a striking, dome-shaped palace built in 1901. It also features massive Mughal style gardens, lofty ceilings, and artistic doors of curved wood. It is also flanked by two reflecting ponds and looks impressive floodlit at night. It offers a feast to the stroller's eyes for just one hour daily.



The water palace is Tripura's most iconic building and is the state's most important tourist destination. A summer resort built in the heart of the lake Rudrasagar; it spreads to over 5.35 sq km. It is the only lake palace in Eastern part of India and reflects a curious blend of Hindu and Mughal architectural styles.

Built in 1930, the Neermahal, is a long, red-and-white water palace, empty, but shimmering on its own marshy island in the lake of Rudra Sagar. Like its counterpart in Rajasthan's Udaipur, this was a handsome exercise in aesthetics; the handpicked craftsmen building a summer citadel of extravagance in a blend of Hindu and Islamic architectural styles. The charming waterborne approach by speed boat is the most enjoyable part of visiting.



Deotamura - meaning "the peak of god's" has interesting series of images carved on the hills facing the river Gomati. True to the name, it has images of all major Hindu deities like Shiva, Ganesh, Vishnu, Durga, Kartikeya and a few others are skillfully carved. There are around 37 rock-cut images on the hill and tourists can take boats to arrive at the place and share in the scenic view of the hill and its sculptures.



Known for its rare stone and rock cot images of the 7th-9th century AD, the Unakoti Tirtha is an unmatched tourist site in its grandeur. Rich with numerous rock-cut sculptures, some of them are massive rock-cut while some others are made out of sandstone. Lush greenery around the place further enhances the beauty of the place.
