Bhuvaneswari Temple in Udaipur, Tripura.
Tripura is not a popular place with Western tourists so I was one hell of a novelty for the locals.

Bhuvaneswari temple is located on the bank of river Gomati at Udaipur in Tripura. Udaipur is known as the “Temple town of Tripura”. It is situated 55 km from the capital city Agartala. The temple was constructed in the 17th century by Maharaja Govinda Manikya. The Royal palace of the Maharaja can also be visited when you pay a visit to this temple as it is located near the temple.

The Bhuvaneswari temple finds mention in two of the plays of Rabindranath Tagore( won the first noble prize in literature in India) – titled Rajarshi and Bisharjan.
