Visit the 8th century open art gallery of Unakoti:
Unakoti is a hill near the Jampui range in Tripura. It is an important Shaivite religious place for the people of the state. Here scattered around the hill are many huge, 8th century rock cut images of Hindu gods and goddesses. This is one of the chief attractions of a trip to Tripura. According to local legend these sculptures are deities who had been turned into stone by an angry Shiva. The locals believe that the total number of the images is one less than a crore. The main image of Shiva’s head including the headdress is 30ft tall. This may be one of the biggest bas relief sculptures of India. The gigantic Ganesh figure and the half buried Nandi invoke quite a lot of curiosity among the spectators. Here Shiva is worshipped as ‘Unakotiswara Kal Bhairava’ along with Durga. The surrounding greenery and scenic beauty enhance the appeal of the place.
