Agartala Tourism

Agartala is the capital city of Tripura, a north-east state of India. It is located in the bank of river Haora and is just 2 kms from the international border of Bangladesh. Agartala, unlike the other hilly cities of the north–east, lies on the Great Ganga Brahmaputra Plain shared by both India and Bangladesh. Due to its close proximity with the neighbouring nation, one can find its reflection on their culture, language and cuisine.

Agartala has a number of tourist destinations to offer to its visitors. The massive white structure of the Ujjayanta Palace was built by its then ruler Maharaja Radha Kishore Manikya in 1901. The beautiful tile floors, curved wooden ceilings, huge Mughal style garden and fountains in the palace compound makes it a popular tourist attraction. Presently, it is the State Legislative Assembly and part of it has been converted to museum. The Heritage Park placed in the centre of the city covers 12 acres of land. The entrance gate depicts the mixed (tribal and non-tribal) cultural heritage of Tripura. The Sukanta Academy is a science museum with a small planetarium set up inside the compound which attracts many students and research scholars. Benuban Vihar, a Buddhist monastery gives its visitors a sense of calmness and spirituality. The magnificent architecture of the Jagannath Temple attracts its visitors. GeduMiar Masjid is a pride place of the Muslim community. Agartala has its own airport and is well connected by roads and railways with other parts of the north-east states of India.
