about agartala

Agartala is best described as a land of different tribes which are integrated together yet representing their own identity in a unique manner. The natural beauty which is still untouched by the crowd makes it even more pristine and tranquil. Nestled amidst sky-high mountains, the place is abundant in wild life, scenic splendors, colorful people as well as rich flora and fauna. Not only that, Agartala has some significant monuments related to eminent people such as Rabindranath Tagore. You can visit the major attractions like Unakoti, Neermahal, Ujjayanta Palace among several others. You can shop for the beautiful handicrafts and woolen clothes at local markets here. The city offers a much refined and unpopulated version of the urban metro life to its visitors. When it comes to adventure, you will be thrilled to explore Beltingchhip, which is the highest peak in the region.

Unakoti is a Shaivite pilgrim spot full of ancient rock cut sculptures and stone carvings. Apart from its religious significance, the place is also a tourist magnet because of its surrounding natural beauty with rolling mountains, lush greenery and waterfalls.

There are a number of rock cut and stone sculptures on this hill. A special mention goes to the 30 feet high statue of Shiva, called the Unakoti shwara Kal Bhairava. The headdress on the statue alone is 10 feet high. On either side, there are two female figurines, one of Goddess Durga standing on a lion, and other remains unidentified.

There are gigantic sculptures of Lord Ganesha and the Nandi Bull as well. It is said there one less than a crore sculptures of various Gods and Goddesses in the area. Today it is managed by the ASI and is declared as a heritage site. Every year during the month of April, Unakoti plays host to the Ashokastami Mela, a huge fair visited by thousands of pilgrims every year.
