Constructed by Maharaja Birendra Kishore Manikya in 1917, the Kunjaban Palace is located on a hillock just about 1km from the Ujjayanta Palace. Formerly known as Pushbanta Palace, this has been home to several illustrious patrons of fine arts, including the renowned scholar and poet, Rabindranath Tagore. This is currently the official residence of the Governor of Tripura. However, the southern parts of the palace called Rabindra Kanan after the versatile Tagore are open to the public. It is believed that he created several of his masterpieces while strolling through these lawns itself.
