Tripura

The Land of Fourteen Gods And Million Statues

Tripura - Overview

Tripura is a state in Northeast India. The third-smallest state in the country, it covers 10,491 km2 (4,051 sq mi) and is bordered by Bangladesh (East Bengal) to the north, south, and west, and the Indian states of Assam and Mizoram to the east. In 2011 the state had 3,671,032 residents, constituting 0.3% of the country's population. The Bengali Hindu people form the ethno-linguistic majority in Tripura. Indigenous communities, known in India as scheduled tribes, form about 30 per cent of Tripura's population. The Kokborok speaking Tripuri people are the major group among 19 tribes and many subtribes. The area of modern 'Tripura' was ruled for several centuries by the Tripuri dynasty. It was the independent princely state of the Tripuri Kingdom under the protectorate of the British Empire which was known as Hill Tippera while the area annexed and ruled directly by British India was known as Tippera District (present Comilla District). The independent Tripuri Kingdom (or Hill Tippera) joined the newly independent India in 1949. Ethnic strife between the indigenous Tripuri people and the migrant Bengali population due to large influx of Bengali Hindu refugees and settlers from Bangladesh (former East Pakistan) led to tension and scattered violence since its integration into the country of India, but the establishment of an autonomous tribal administrative agency and other strategies have led to peace.

Tripura lies in a geographically disadvantageous location in India, as only one major highway, the National Highway 8, connects it with the rest of the country. Five mountain ranges—Boromura, Atharamura, Longtharai, Shakhan and Jampui Hills—run north to south, with intervening valleys; Agartala, the capital, is located on a plain to the west. The state has a tropical savanna climate, and receives seasonal heavy rains from the south west monsoon. Forests cover more than half of the area, in which bamboo and cane tracts are common. Tripura has the highest number of primate species found in any Indian state. Due to its geographical isolation, economic progress in the state is hindered. Poverty and unemployment continue to plague Tripura, which has a limited infrastructure. Most residents are involved in agriculture and allied activities, although the service sector is the largest contributor to the state's gross domestic product.

Top Places to Visit

Sukanta Academy

It is a science museum located in the heart of Agartala town. A small planetarium has also been set up within the complex to attract students, research scholars and scientist. In order to achieve the objectives of promoting Science, Arts & Culture through the active involvement of the children in Science, Arts & Culture, the Government of Tripura took a decision to develop a centre named Sukanta Academy with necessary infrastructure in Children’s Park of Agartala. The foundation stone of the said was laid down by Sri Nripen Chakroborty, the then Chief Minister of Tripura in the year 1986.

Neheru Park

The reddish glow of the toxic top-soil on the bare strip of land in Gorkha Basti area, north of Agartala town, would hurt the eyes till a few years ago. It was the time when the state government was looking to shift a part of its administrative setup out of the heart of the town. Quite naturally the choice fell on the government land in sprawling Gorkha Basti area. It was then that the idea of building a park occurred to the authority of the forest department.The result is today’s Nehru Park in front of 'Aranya Bhawan', headquarter of the forest department. It had taken lot of efforts and expenses to process the soil and prepare it for varied floral plants with spaces for seating in the emerging green cover. The Park, inaugurated in the year 2003, is now a happy hub of people of all ages tired of living in ‘city pent’.

Ujjayanta Palace

This royal house, which stands in the Capital city Agartala covering 1(one) sq.Km. area was built by Maharaja Radha Kishore Manikya during 1899-1901. It is a two storied mansion, having a mixed type of architecture with three high domes, the central one being 86’ high. The magnificent tile floor, curved wooden ceiling and beautifully crafted doors are particularly notable. The palace is set with huge Mughal style gardens, beautified by pools and gardens. Flood lighting and fountains have also added to its beauty.

Heritage Park

The Heritage Park, spread over twelve acre of land,is located at the centre of the city, on the northern side of Raj Bhawan on the Agartala-GBP Hospital road. This park was inaugurated on the 30th November 2012 by the Hon’ble Chief Minister, Tripura.
