Tripura is a popular pilgrimage center in India. The temple sculpture of Tripura, thus, to a large extent reflects the religious beliefs of the people. The style followed by the temples of Tripura is that of the Nagara architecture. The Tripura Sundari Temple
, Agartala is hailed as one of the Shakti Peethas in India. Hence people from all over the subcontinent flock to this holy place.
The temple sculpture of Tripura, however, differs from the other East Indian temple sculptures. The grandeur and magnificence of the West Bengal
temples are definitely missing. Yet the basic style of the architecture conforms to the North Indian idiom style of temple building. The temple buildings have been constructed in a simple style. The temple complexes generally house one shrine at a time. The shikharas are not sky high and the sculptures rarely adorn the outer walls of the Tripura temples.
The following temples have been consecrated in the native Tripura style of architecture and sculpture:
