Art & Architecture, Philosophy & Culture, Picture Of The Day, The Flavours of India, Travel

Photo Of The Day – Sep 28th 2012


A little known and rarely travelled part of India is the North eastern state of Tripura. This was once the seat of a thriving kingdom that extended upwards through Assam, Manipur and Myanmar. There are some superb examples of rock cut and built form Hindu architecture that can be found here that have their own distinct styles and motifs.

Today’s picture shows the rockcut figures found at Unakoti, Tripura.

The Unakotiswara Kal Bhairava, Tripura.

For more information on Unakoti, please refer to the wikipedia entry found here.
