Benuban Vihar, situated at a distance of 2 km north from Agartala is a small Buddhist shrine in the Kunjaban area. This shrine preserves a metal idol of Bodhisatva and Lord Buddha, which was originally created in Burma. However, the idol was later transferred to Benuban Vihar for installation into this shrine. Buddha Jayanti, which falls on the occasion of Buddha Purnima, is celebrated with colour and fervour in this shrine. The celebration is followed by a fair, which attracts hordes of religious groups and tourists.
