Inaugurated in 2013, the Agartala - Akhaura check post is the second-largest Indian trading centre with Bangladesh. It divides the countries of India and Bangladesh, along the border state of Tripura. Lying about 6 km from the city of Agartala, the border boasts infrastructure that is similar to that of the famous Wagah Border in Amritsar. The place is a popular tourist spot as visitors come here to witness the ceremony in which the flags of the two countries are lowered by security personnel with a mutually coordinated performance. Created with the aim of easy facilitation of goods and passengers beyond borders, it also helps foster the Indo-Bangladesh relations. Some other tourist attractions nearby include the Ujjayanta Palace, Neermahal etc.
