Jagannath Temple

Location: 

The city of Agartala was chosen above Udaipur as the capital by the Manikyas. The Manikyas preferred to decorate the city and adorned it with specially created monuments and beauty spots. The jagganath Dighi lake is one such ornamental lake specially created. The shores of this pond play host to the Jagannath temple. The idol of Neelmadhav/ Lord Jagannath at Puri is believed to have been donated from this temple. The temple overlooking the Jagannath dighi lake shows heavy inclination towards Islamic style of architecture and design. The exteriors of the temple are a curious mix of Hemadpanthi and Arabic style. The interiors, however, are of typical Hindu flair.
