TEMPLE IN TRIPURA

Tripura - a tiny modern state, one of the many similar ones of the Indian union lying to the east of East Bengal is treasuring up many ancient Hindu relics in the form of old temples and architectural remains. From the inscriptions and the ancient monuments in ruins, the archeologists have unearthed the hidden glory of Hinduism, as a matter of fact. The state and its environs then went by the name of Tippera, and when it was under the domination of Mauryan kings, Hinduism raised its head and displayed its multidimensional splendor. But, the ruthless inroads made by Muslim bigots did incalculable destruction and effaced its glory. Yet, here and there, there are certain monuments standing proof of their former splendor.

Among the surviving relics, one can see a rich spiritual treasure on the Unakoti hills. There is an abundant proof of magnificent temples built for both Vaishnavate and Saivate gods, but it is a pity that they were destroyed beyond recognition and identification. The Jagannatha temple with its huge dimensions and massive structures beckons the attention of the theists of not only Tripura but outsiders also. In its vicinity there lies a colossus rock cut head of Lord Siva, demanding indispensable visitation. It is bereft of supreme craftsmanship, or dazzling polish, yet one can discern sensitive modeling and neat execution of facial features, resembling the Elephanta cave carvings in the state of Maharastra. It is a standing testimony of the extant Saivism prevalent then. Just as theists offer soulful prayers to the Trimurti or Siva images at Elephant caves, devout theists offer their prayers to this holy image and feel elated. Though not installed in a magnificent edifice, it is receiving adoration regularly by the ardent Saivates. Despite standing exposed to the fiery of elements, this huge image is conferring boons to the adorers. Moreover, the entire hill front is covered with images of several Hindu gods. A worth seeing sight !

It lies at Unakoti - Koilasahar and can be reached by four wheelers from Tripura, the capital.
