Located in hilly terrains of the North East India, Tripura is among the most beautiful mountainous regions of the country. The vast stretches of rugged terrains, lush green forests, amazing wildlife and breathtaking architecture of Tripura lure plenty of tourists. While the wildlife and natural beauty is awesome, Tripura also boasts of a rich heritage. The palaces and monuments of dynasties of monarchs stand as witnesses of history. Steeped in history, Dharmanagar is one such town of Tripura that attracts visitors.

Nuances of Dharmanagar

Tripura’s second largest city Dharmanagar is also one of its most beautiful cities. It is ideal for tourists with a penchant for revisiting heritage and past of places. The town is surrounded by Assam, Mizoram and Bangladesh. Earlier it was quite large in size but over time, its boundaries have been curtailed.

The climate is more or less pleasant though summers tend to be humid and quite hot. There are thundershowers in monsoon. Winter temperature can be quite low.

Situated on banks of the famous dighi lake, it witnesses plenty of footfalls over the years. The pristine surroundings are soothing on eyes. Other popular religious places in Dharmanagar are the ISKCON temple, Hari Mandir, and Shiva Bari. Both Durga puja and kali puja is celebrated with gusto in the city.

The Dighi lake placed at middle part of the town is one big attraction for visitors. On its banks, some temples are located and there is a fountain at the middle part which is illuminated at night.
