Boxanagar is one of the archaeological sites in West Tripura a northeastern state of India. The place is cleared and cleaned recently and after clearing of a natural forest area ruins of a brick-built building emerged in the northwestern part of Sonamura subdivision on the edge of the border with Bangladesh. The local people initially attributed the remains to an ancient temple of Manasaa - the goddess of Snake.

It was in a dilapidated condition. When attention of Archaeological Survey of India was drawn to it, they took over the site but in fact nothing was done towards its protection and proper preservation. Later an idol of Lord Buddha was discovered and confirmed that it had been a Buddha Temple. He gave assurances of immediate excavation of the site to find out the hidden story. At present the site is well protected by barbed wire fencing and preservation work is on.
