Tripura / ˈ t r ɪ p uː r ɑː / is a state in Northeast India. The third-smallest state in the country, it covers 10,491 km 2 (4,051 sq mi) and is bordered by Bangladesh to the north,  south, and west, and the Indian states of Assam and Mizoram to the east. In 2011 the state had 3,671,032 residents, constituting 0.3% of the country's population.
Mainstream Indian cultural elements coexist with traditional practices of the ethnic groups, such as various dances to celebrate religious occasions, weddings and festivities; the use of locally crafted musical instruments and clothes; and the worship of regional deities. The sculptures at the archaeological sites Unakoti , Pilak and Devtamura provide historical evidence of artistic fusion between organised and tribal religions. The Great Chinmoy in Agartala was the former royal abode of the Tripuri king.
The Sanskrit name is linked to Tripura Sundari , the presiding deity of the Tripura Sundari Temple at Udaipur , one of the 51 Shakti Peethas (pilgrimage centres of Shaktism ),   and to the legendary tyrant king Tripur, who reigned in the region. Tripur was the 39th descendant of Druhyu , who belonged to the lineage of Yayati , a king of the Lunar Dynasty.
