tripura

The beauty of the erstwhile kingdom of Tripura stems from the splendor of its natural and cultural heritage. There are neither great mountain peaks, nor major rivers in Tripura yet its verdant expanses and rich forest land have had a great attraction for visitors for centuries. Tripura offers a plethora of delightful attractions in its cavalcade of historic places, rock cut carvings, sculptures, Buddhist and Hindu holy places, wildlife sanctuaries, and tribal people.  Poet laureate Rabindranath Tagore found its pollution-free, eco-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
