If you are interested in history, mythology,sculpture, creativity,artistic skill,nature- then Unakoti is a must in your Tripura visit. It will take 3 hours by train to reach Kumarghat from Agartala Rly Station and one can hire a car at Kumarghat station for Unakoti (45 minutes by car).

Visited this place today. Not much to see apart from the giant Shiva head and that of Parvati and Ganesh. The atmosphere is serene and full of greenery. But the landscape is undulating and needs hard trekking. More scope for promotion and development. Not very impressed as compared to the aura and hype surrounding this place. Very disappointed to see... More

The marvelous rock cut carvings mostly relate to Lord Shiva, will mesmerize you whether you are history lover or possess interest in architecture. Local tribal people say that it relates to 6-7th century and nobody knows who have created these. Few people say that Lord Shiva along with several Devi and Devta camped here. Whatever is the story, but you... More

A good place in remote location. Good interesting mythological stories associated. Not very famous and not much to visit around but definitely a place not to miss in Tripura.

Tucked away in a far off blue mountain in the North Tripura is Unokuti, a sleepy little hamlet that nestles one of India's most beautiful ancient stone carvings, so different in style and design from mainland India! The adjacent mofussil town is also aptly named Kailasahar. The narrow valley sandwiched between three rocky hillside lodges the biggest stone images of... More

It is difficult to explain about this place, just can say, goosebumps arise when even think or imagine back of this place. Nothing missing of this place, art, mystic, wilderness, sanctity and what not? Just be there in a lifetime.

Our main purpose of visiting Tripura was to visit this place! We visited this place on 7th May, 2016. It took more than 4 hours from Agartala to reach this place and it was a very bad ride as the road was two lane with lot of pot holes and detours. But, it gave us a great scenery of Tripura,...
