Ujjayanta Palace


The gleaming white Ujjayanta Palace located in the capital city of Agartala evokes the age of Tripura Maharajas. The name Ujjayanta Palace was given by Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore. It is a unique experience to witness history and royal splendour within the walls of Ujjayanta Palace. This Palace was built by Maharaja Radha Kishore Manikya in 1901 AD; this Indo-Saracenic building is set in large Mughal-style gardens on a lakefront. The palace has three domes each 86 feet high, stunning tile floors, curved wooden ceilings and wonderfully crafted doors. There are many temples set around the Palace. Floodlight in the evening enhances the attraction of this site. It housed the State Legislative Assembly up to 2011. Today the Royal Palace houses the State Museum with an impressive collection of royal and cultural artefacts.
