    Lesser-known wonder of India: Pilak (Tripura)

    Tripura has many lesser-known and unknown tourist spots. Some of these tourist spots are archaeological sites. One such site is Unakoti, which I mentioned in an earlier Forum post. Another lesser known spot is Pilak. Let us know about Pilak.

    From the state capital Agartala, if we move towards south, wr reach Jolaibari at a distance of around 105 km. It is in South Tripura district. In Jolaibari, amidst lush green natural beauty, an archaological site has been found. The site is called Pilak. Many Mahayana Buddhist images and Hindu deities have been found in this site. The archaologists have deduced that this place was developed during the eighth century.

    Among the many relics which have been found in this site, the important ones are Stupas, Buddha in a meditation pose, Goddess Marichi (a Goddess worshipped by the Buddhists of various sects) and a beautiful terracotta image of Trimurti. The images prove that this area had direct contact with Bengal's Pala and Samatata kingdoms.

    Again the same request. Members may find some time to visit this archaeological treasures found amidst beautiful and bountiful nature. Jolaibari is at a distance of 105 km. from Agartala. Regular bus and taxi services are available from Agartala. The nearest rail sation is Kumarghat.

    Mr.Partha, thank you very much for introducing us another tourist spot. As we read your post we feel we should visit those spots also. But time is to be adjusted. Anyhow, how whether we go there or not your writings are making us happy and sometimes we are feeling that we are in the visit of that spot. Good and expect some more postings of similar nature from you.
    always confident

    The author has been working as a brand ambassador for various untapped tourist spots in the country especially the Pilak near Agartala of Triupura district. Surely i was not aware of this great site which seems to have the treasure of old monuments and remains. Such sites need to be visited at least once in life time. All the seven states of NE must come forward and form a group to promote tourism in their respective states by giving wide publicity on new findings and old treasures of natural bountifulness so that tourist can plan their visits in advance and commute without any glitch.
