Introduction:

The beauty of the erstwhile princely state of Tripura stems from the splendour of its natural setting and its dazzling heritage. No great peaks punctuate the skies, nor are its major rivers such as the Khowai, Manu and Gomti any match for the mighty Brahmaputra. Yet its verdant expanses and rich forestlands have been a great attraction to people down the centuries and for tourists down the decades it offers a plethora of delightful attractions in its cavalcade of historic palaces, rock cut carvings, stone sculptures, Buddhist and Hindu holy places, wildlife sanctuaries and tribal people. Poet Rabindranath Tagore, an honored guest found its pollution-free, co-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. A series of low ranges running in a northwest to southeast direction dissect the state, with elevations progressing gradually from 100 ft – 3000 ft from southwest to northeast. Bangladesh with whom the state had deep linkages before India’s partition is tucked around it from three sides. For the visitor, Tripura (one of the relatively unknown holiday destinations of the North East) is a bundle full of surprises. It cross-cultural ethnic diversity, its ancient temples, its vast tracts of natural beauty and its rich tradition of handicrafts are tempting enough to draw the discerning holiday maker.To buy some of Tripura’s famous cane and bamboo craft, pop into Purbasha, in Agartala an outlet of Tripura Handicrafts and Handloom Development Corporation. Tantumita is also famous for traditional handlooms. Apart from these, cheek out the many private shops on Akhaura Road for excellent choice of Tripura Handicrafts.
