Best Places to Visit in Agartala

Ujjayanta Palace
A former royal palace located in the lovely city of Agartala, the Ujjayanta Palace is one of the main tourist attractions in the area; and in Tripura overall. Now turned into a museum (considered by many as the largest museum in Northeast India), the palace got its name from the renowned poet Rabindranath Tagore. 

If mystery excites you then a visit to Unakoti, the smallest district in Tripura, is a must. Fondly known as the “Lost Hill of Faces”, Unakoti is a pilgrimage site which showcases intricate rock carvings and murals of mythological figures. The place holds immense religious and spiritual significance among the local people and has some really interesting tales around it. You go to be here to understand the mystery. 

Neer Mahal
‘Neer’ is a sanskrit term for ‘water’, and that’s what this place precisely means; palace of water. A beautiful architecture located right in the middle of the Rudrasagar Lake and spanning 5.35 sq. kms., this is the only lake palace in Northeast India. 

Jagannath Temple
Jagannath temple is one of the most popular spot in all of Tripura and finds its place in several Agartala travel itineraries. The temple is dedicated to lord Jagannath, Balabhadra, and Subhadra, and is located within the premises of Ujjayanta Palace. A very interesting angle about this temple’s architecture is that while its front is mostly built in the Islamic style, the interior is lavishly decked in Hindu style.

Jampui Hills
Welcome to the highest hill range in the Tripura state that borders Mizoram, and is located roughly 200 kilometers from the main Agartala city. Three thousand feet above sea level is the permanent seat of perpetual spring. You’d be in luck if you plan your Agartala holidays during the month of November as you can witness the unique Orange & Tourism festival is held at the Jampui hill.
