Welcome to Unakoti
Located about 140km northeast of Agartala, the archaeological site of Unakoti is one of Northeast India’s best-kept travel secrets. Massive rock-cut sculptures of Hindu gods and goddesses (some dating back to the 7th century) adorn the faces of hillocks at the site, including a 10m-tall face of Shiva sculpted on a monolithic rock, and a trio of Ganeshas hewn in stone beneath a waterfall. It takes about two hours to see all the major sights in the archaeological zone, spread across hillocks and jungles. If you go hunting for more obscure sculptures, it could take you all day.
