Posted on: November 17, 2021 | Back | Print

In the far East of India is the land of Tripura. It is a land of verdant hills and lush greenery. Travelling through Tripura is taking a journey into a time when there were thick forests everywhere. A sense of the eternal still pervades the life of the people and images of their devotion are to be seen everywhere.

How many know that the largest rock-cut reliefs of Lord Shiva are in Tripura? How many know that among the earliest Buddhist Vajrayana depictions are to be found in a Pala period stupa in Tripura? How many know that Tripura is one of the great centers of the worship of Durga?

Mr Benoy K. Behl has had the pleasure of visiting Tripura since 1974 and in this film, he has the pleasure of taking you to some of these rarely-seen sites. 

You are warmly invited to the online screening 'Ancient Land of Tripura' at 1330 hrs (CET) or 1800 hrs (IST) on Saturday, 20 November. No registration or payment is required.
