Jagannath Temple was built by the Manikyas, who chose Agartala above Udaipur as the capital. For decorating the capital, they adorned it with numerous monuments and beautiful sites. Though inclined to Islamic architecture, the Jagannath Temple represents a confluence of Hemadpanthi and Arabic style on the exterior and Hindu flair on the insides.
It is believed that the idol of Neelmadhav at Puri had been donated from this temple. Open to travellers in the present time, this temple replicated the rich architectural heritage of Agartala. Orange in colour, the temple has an octagonal base and the pillars are crowned by square and pyramidal cones. Moreover, the impression of ‘pradhkshin patha’ round the sanctum further adds to the beauty of this national heritage temple at the capital of Tripura.
