Tripura is a tiny state in the North-East of the country. It has extensive international border with Bangladesh and, in fact, 85% of its perimeter is international border with rest being common boundary with Assam and Mizoram to the East.
This ancient land of mysterious past represents a composite culture with several ethnic groups residing in the state. Though the cultural heritage of one community differs from the other, the manifested efforts have mingled them into a single whole, giving birth to a unique cultural genre.
Tripura can be termed as a ‘laboratory’ of exotic cultural synthesis. Tripura, quite off the beaten track, is a storehouse of tribal crafts and culture as well as music and dancing. Tripura has a large number of attractive tourist sites including religious sites of Hindu’s and Buddhists.
Considering the proximity of Tripura with Bangladesh, it is more convenient for foreign nationals to enter Tripura via Bangladesh with an appropriate visa.
