Unakoti Rock Carvings, Tripura

Been there recently?

A stream flows down slowly along the stepped hill, and all along the way it forms small waterfalls. On either side of these waterfalls are carved some beautiful and gigantic sculptures that amaze and astound the visitors with their scale, innovation, and execution. It is obvious that there is no set plan for these carvings. Wherever a rock is visible on the vertical face of the hill, it has been shaped into an attractive carving. Nearly a hundred sculptures, including the rock carvings and the stone sculptures, are seen scattered all over the hills and all along the way the flow of the stream. The 30 feet tall carving of Bhagawan Shiva along with that of Ganesha stand out among the nearly hundred carvings. The unique place, located in a shallow valley, is a revered religious site for the followers of Bhagawan Shiva. Some historians date these creations to the pre-10th century, while some to post-11th century. The best time to visit Unakoti is between September to March. Unakoti is approximately 140 kilometres from Agartala, which is also the nearest airport. Kumarghat, 25 kilometres away, is the nearest railway station. Dharmanagar, at 20 kilometres, has better rail connections.
