One of the famous archaeological sites place to visit in Tripura is Chabimura which is famous for its panels of rock carvings on the steep mountain wall on the bank of Gomati. Chabimura is also known as Deotamura, Chobimura, Chakwrakma and Chakrakma. This site includes huge carvings of the images of Devi Chakrakma, Lord Ganesha, Lord Kartikeya, Maa Durga and other Gods and Goddesses. These images date back to the 15th-16th centuries. The Chabimura is located near Devtamura Hills on the banks of River Gomti in the central region of Tripura. The statues have been carved on the steep sloping rock exposures of the Kalajhari Hills. The banks of river Gomati are very steep, covered with thick and impregnable vegetation and are inaccessible; therefore the journey has to be undertaken by a boat. There are almost 37 rock-cut images in Chabimura and on the banks of the river there are some caves located but it is difficult to access. Walk to these caves, though not long, is hazardous and has to be done through a flowing water stream with huge rocks and trees blocking the path. This journey is not for the faint-hearted. It is adventurous non-the less. The place Chabimura is a rare combination of history and natural beauty. The cave-in Chabimura is one of the interesting places. There is a waterfall inside the cave and the tourists visit only up to that point. The locals believe that beyond that the cave is protected and should not be entered. The place is almost 100 kilometres away from Agartala the capital city of Tripura which is almost about three hours drive. The best time to visit the archaeological site is during November to February and if anyone is travelling from Agartala then one need to start early and carry own food and water since it is a remote place and there are very few and basic hotel which operates during busy days only or one needs to inform in advance for foods. One must visit the archaeological site and the hill ranges are covered with thick jungles and one can reach this abode of gods only after trekking through these jungles. The road leading to the river bank where the rock-cut images exist is itself is a treat to the eye. The area is also an eco-Tourism centre.
