One of the most important and much-venerated attractions and places of Tripura is the ancient temple of Matabari, also known as Tripura Sundari. It is situated on a tortoise-back shaped hilltop, just 4 km from Udaipur and 56 km from Agartala Matabari (Mother Goddess) Considered one of the 51 peeths (holy sites) of Hindu pilgrimage. Goddess Tripura Sundari is an avatar of Parvati the consort of Lord Shiva, the principal deity of the state. A curious legend surrounds its origins and why is this a one of the places people sought after. Tripura's King Dhanya Manikya of the 15th century is said to have a dream ordering him to establish a temple dedicated to the goddess on the hilltop. As the king had already dedicated the site to Lord Vishnu he could not fulfil the signs he had received in the dream, because lord Vishnu & Parvati could not share the abode. The dreams kept on coming to the king repeatedly till the king gave in to the Demands of the God, the king did as he was bid.
