Agartala, the capital of Tripura, is the second largest city of North-Eastern India and is situated at a distance of just 2km from neighbouring Bangladesh. Formerly, the city was known as ‘New Haveli’ before it got rechristened as ‘Agartala’. Nowadays, this relatively low-key city boasts of being an ideal tourist destination due to its near perfect natural beauty, rich cultural diversity and pleasant weather.
Historically, the capital city of Tripura was at Rangamati, the modern day Udaipur in South Tripura. Later in the year 1849 AD, Maharaja Krishna Kishore Manikya shifted his capital to present day Agartala. But it was Maharaja Bir Bikram Manikya Bahadur who is considered to be the founder of the modern city of Agartala.
