An Insight into Kailashahar Tourism

Unakoti, well renowned for its rock and stone carvings, is closely associated with Kailashahar.

According to folk tales, the Tripurabda or Tripuri Calendar was established by  a descendant of King Jujhar Fa, who was a devotee of Lord Shiva. On the shores of the Rover Mau in Chhambulnagar, he offered prayers to Mahadev. It is said that Kailashahar's initial name was Chhambulnagar. 

Some claim that Kailash-har, which was subsequently changed into Kailashahar, was formed by combining Har (another name for Lord Shiva) and Mount Kailash ( Lord Shiva's home). Since the Tripura king Adi-Dharmapha conducted a significant yagna here in the 7th century, the name Kailashahar has become widely known and used. 

The winter season is the best time to visit Kailashahar due to the pleasant and mild weather with a drop in temperature. It is also a great time to explore the surrounding areas. After a rainstorm, Kailashahar becomes even more beautiful with lush vegetation. Use the weather information in the Kailashahar travel guide to plan your trip and make the most of the favorable conditions.

There are many interesting places and things to do in Kailashahar, some of which are mentioned here in the Kailashahar travel guide. The 85 square kilometer Rowa Wildlife Sanctuary is close to Kailashahar. The location of the current Rowa Wildlife Sanctuary was originally decided because it only had tall trees and dense undergrowth. The 'Khasi' tribal families preserved these trees. They used to grow betel or pan leaves, and many animals frequently used the area as a shelter. The current wildlife sanctuary was constructed after the forest department took control of the region after the tribes had left. 

A journey to Shiva Unakoti, perched atop the Unakoti peak and 8 kilometres from Kailashahar town, is one of Tripura's most significant pilgrimage sites and a famous Kailashahat tourist attraction. Unakoti is a Bengali word that signifies "one less than a crore." There are nearly one billion granite carvings in the area. Unakoti is a popular tourist destination for those who enjoy archaeology because it contains enormous stone statues of Lord Shiva and rock-cut images.

In Kailashahar, there is a revered shrine called Lakhi Narayan Bari. Lord Krishna is worshipped in this shrine. Sateramiar Hawar, 9 kilometres from Kailashahar, is a renowned Muslim holy site. According to legend, Sateramiar Hawar used a canoe to transport 17 Muslims (Mia) across a large body of water. The Cherra and Bagua Cherra streams, which converge in the middle of the field, provide water for the region.

Even though trains don't go to Kailashahar, Kumarghat is not far away. Kailashahar is 27 kilometres from Kumarghat, and the trip there by car takes 50 minutes. A few trains pass through Kumarghat that can link you to other parts of the nation. They are practical choices. You can find a variety of Chinese, Indian, and Bangla dishes to enjoy here. The local cuisine primarily consists of rice and various fish preparations, which are cooked using simple techniques and  mild spices.

You can find diverse cultures in every nook and cranny of Kailashahar because it is a genuinely secular town where Hindus, Muslims, Christians, and Buddhists coexist peacefully. The village of Kailashahar is stunning. The lovely town is dotted with temples and tea plantations that are a vibrant green. Without viewing the popular and beautiful places of Kailashahar, a trip to Kailashahar would be incomplete.
