Tripura – A Cultural Paradise

The beauty of the erstwhile princely state of Tripura stems from the splendour of its natural setting and its dazzling heritage. No great peaks punctuate the skies, nor are its major rivers such as Khowai, Monu and Gomti any match for the mighty ‘Brahmaputra’.

Yet its verdant expanses and rich forestlands have been a great attraction to people down the centuries and for tourists down the decades. It offers a plethora of delightful attractions in its cavalcade of historical places; rock cut carvings, stone sculptures, Buddhists and Hindu holy places, wildlife sanctuaries and tribal people. Poet laureate Rabindranath Tagore, an honoured guest found its pollution-free, co-friendly environment, pleasant climate and tranquility the perfect retreat to compile some of his works here. Blending into the hills and valleys, the villages are a tapestry of rich ethnic traditions.
