Located in the capital city Agartala, Ujjayanta is a royal palace that elegantly sits over an area of one sq. km. Carved in Greek sculpture; the palace was built by Maharaja Radhakishorelan Manikaya in 1901. The name Ujjayanta Palace was given by Rabindranath Tagore. Associated with it, the spectacular fountains and the flood lightning that enhance its beauty. Tripura Tourism is incomplete without a visit to this royal palace.
During that period, it was constructed at a cost 10 lakh of rupees. At one time this majestic palace was situated 10 km away from the city but after a devastating earthquake in 1897, the castle got destroyed. Later on, it was rebuilt in the heart of the city.
The impressive two-storied mansion has a mixed type of architecture. It has the three high domes, adding to its majestic look. The central one is of 86 feet high. The distinctive features of the palace are the spectacular tile floor and exquisitely carved wooden ceiling and doors. Flood lighting at night makes the gardens look more appealing.
Its beautifully laid out gardens have two huge tanks on either side and the fountains are beautifully laid out in the patterns of the Mughal gardens. The chief block here encompasses 800 across including public halls like Throne Room, Durbar Hall, Recreational Hall, Study, Library and many more.
On different sides of the palace complex, there are several temples. These temples are devoted to Uma-Maheshwari, Lakshmi-Narayan, Kali and Jagannath. They attract large number of tourists every year.
The palace is now an Assembly House of Tripura. Therefore, selected portions of the castle are opened for tourists only when the State Assembly is not in session.
The latest attraction of the palace is Musical Fountain in tune with music. This is one such scene that one should not miss.
