Neermahal

Neermahal, the water palace, built in 1930 by Maharaja Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya. It was a summer resort and is located at a distance of about 55 kilometers from Agartala. It is one of the good combinations of assimilation between Hindu and Mughal architectural design. Maharaja (King) Bir Bikram built this palace with the British architecture company, namely Martin & Burn. The 400 meters long palace has housed 24 rooms. It is located in the centre of a lake covering an area of 5.3 square kilometers.

This spectacular edifice still reflects the wave of its past glory and castes its spell on the mind of the visiting tourists. Well laid gardens and flood lighting add color to the beauty. In winter large numbers of migratory birds are seen in Rudrasagar Lake surrounding the palace. There’s a boat festival held at the lake annually. Visitors can stay at the picturesquely located Saharamahal Tourist Lodge at Rajghat, the access point for the palace from which one can get a boat. Another attraction here is the craft and heritage village.

In fact, the then King Bir Bikram built this fabulous edifice to mark the most significant achievement of his life. His glorious deed is the establishment of Maharaja Bir Bikram College, built upon a verdant green valley in Agartala. Bir Bikram was a true follower of his immediate predecessors who were champions in promoting art, culture and education in this tribal dominated princely state of that time.
