While the lights glittered and dazzled the City Place of Udaipur for an extravagant Indian wedding, the Neermahal Palace of Agartala watched a quiet sunset on the backdrop of fading chirps.
Located on a fast disappearing lake Rudrasagar, Neermahal Palace bears a striking resemblance to the Jag Niwas Palace of Udaipur and represents the unheard royalty of the kings in the east.
King Bir Bikram Kishore Debbarman of the Manikya dynasty built this palace in the year 1930. Constructed by a British company called Martins and Burns, the palace was completed in 9 years after its commencement.
The King was a progressive ruler who pioneered the planning of the present day's Tripura and is also considered as the father of Tripura's modern architecture.
