Tripur Sundari temple

One of the oldest temples of India dedicated to the reigning deity of the state of Tripura, the Tripur Sundari temple is also one of the many Shakti Piths in the country. This temple has many legends attached to it. According to one of the legends, the idol was beneath the water, which, a king of the Manikya dynasty saw in a divine dream. He eventually took it out and installed it. Another legend goes that the idol was brought from Chittagong in Bangladesh. It is said that the King had a dream saying that idol had to be brought before day break otherwise it would not move. While getting the idol, suddenly dawn broke and no one was able to move the idol, so the place came to be known as Matabari, house of the Mother, and a temple was built on the site. The temple too is pretty old, older than the famous Kamakhya temple of Guwahati and the Kali Ghat of Kolkata.
The idol of the goddess is made of touch stone. She wears a garland of skulls or the munda mala and has four forelimbs. The architecture of the temple is built in 1501 A.D. has Bengali style of architecture. Another important feature of the temple is that it also has a Vishnu temple under the same roof. It is vary rare to have the Vaishnav and the Shakta cults to be worshipped under the same roof.
