Tripura is a northeastern state of India. This is the third-smallest state of India. It covers a 10,491 km2 total area and is surrounded by the border of Bangladesh to the north-south, and west, and the Indian states of Assam and Mizoram to the east.

History Of Tripura

Tripura has been ruled for several centuries by the Manikya dynasty. This was part of an independent princely state under the protectorate of the British Empire. The independent Tripuri Kingdom (also known as Hill Tippera) joined the newly independent India in 1949.

Tripura lies in a geographically disadvantageous location in India, as only one major highway, the National Highway 8, connects it with the rest of the country. It has five mountain ranges from Boromura, Atharamura, Longtharai, Shakhan, and Jampui Hills.

Agartala is the capital of Tripura, located on a plain to the west. The state has a tropical savanna climate and receives seasonal heavy rains from the southwest monsoon. Forests cover more than half of the area, in which bamboo and cane tracts are common. Tripura has the highest number of primate species found in any Indian state. Due to its geographical isolation, economic progress in the state is hindered. Poverty and unemployment continue to plague Tripura, which has a limited infrastructure. Most residents are involved in agriculture and allied activities, although the service sector is the largest contributor to the state's gross domestic product.
