The former residence of the royal family of Tripura, Neermahal is counted among the most beautiful places in Tripura. It is a palace built right in the middle of the Rudrasagar Lake, a 6 sq. km water body. It is not only beautiful but is highly regarded for its engineering excellence. The Neermahal Palace, which literally means the Water Palace, was built in 1930 by King Bir Bikram Kishore Debbarman.
The palace’s architecture shows resemblance to both Hindu and Islamic designs and is constructed purely of sandstone and marble. The palace has several towers, balconies, bridges and pavilions, adding to the beauty of the design. Though built in the midst of water, the palace has abundant greenery all around with gardens blooming with colourful flowers all throughout the year.
Today the Neermahal palace, which is located close to the city of Agartala is one of the most visited and popular tourist attractions of the state.
