14 Devata Temple

The temple of fourteen Gods is located at Old Agartala in Sadar Sub-division of West Tripura district, about 6 km away from the present capital city Agartala. This temple, commonly known as Chaturdas Devta temple, is historically important .As per gathered information; this temple was established by Maharaja Krishna Kishore Manikya in 1770 A.D. Before 1770 A.D., the images of the deities were in two temples at Udaipur, former capital of princely Tripura. Maharaja Krishna Kishore Manikya, being defeated by Shamsher Ghazi, shifted the capital of Tripura from Udaipur to Old Agartala, brought the images of the fourteen gods and established the present temple. The ruins of the old royal palace are still there beside the temple. Inside the temple, images of fourteen gods do not consist of full body, only the images of heads of gods are there.

Every year, special worship of fourteen gods is held associated with a Mela or fair of harmony and cultural synthesis. This special occasion is known as Kharchi Puja, observed during the month of Shraban (July-August) which is very famous in Tripura. Though this is basically a tribal festival, yet people from all caste and creed participate in the occasion. The fair organized is a seven days long affair and the Old Agartala wears a gala-festive look with thousands of people celebrating the occasion. This occasion attracts a number of sadhus as well as tourists from outside the state.
