Tripura Sundari Temple

Tripura Sundari Temple

Sundari Temple, Visit Sundari Temple of Tripura, Temple tour of Sundari Temple, Religious place of TripuraThe temple of Tripura Sundari, considered to be one of the 51 pithas of Hindu pilgrims consists of square type sanctum of the typical Bengali-hut type construction with a conical dome and stands on a hillock at Udaipur. It is located at a distance of 58 kms from Agartala and 3 kms from Udaipur which is the district Head-Quarter of the South Tripura district.

According to an inscription note on the monuments by the Archaeological Survey of India, there are two identical images of the same deity i.e. Tripura Sundari, inside the temple. One is called 'Chhotima' which appears to be a regional one measuring about 2 feets in height, while the other 'Tripura Sundari' is of 5 feet. It is difficult to date the image of Chhotima accurately as it is worn-out. Moreover the attributes in her hands are either too much blurred or lost.

It was repaired by Maharaja Rama Manikya in 1681 A D, when it was damaged by lightning and again by Maharaja Radhakishore Manikya during the beginning of this century. In the Eastern side of the temple there is the famous Kalyan Sagar where fishes and tortoises of huge size are found and devotees feed them with puffed rice (Muri) and biscuits. No fishing is permitted in Kalyan Sagar.
