Neermahal Water Palace, Melaghar, Sepahijala District

   Neermahal literally means Water Palace. The place is a picturesque fairytale Royal mansion located in the middle of the Rudrasagar Lake which is 53 km South of Agartala. Maharaja Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya built the palace in 1930 A.D as his summer residence being inspired by Mughal Style of Architecture. Viewing Neermahal from the back of Rudrasagar reminds one of the famous and enchanting ‘Jagniwas Palace’ in Pichola Lake at Udaipur, Rajasthan. It is a fascinating sight to view the reflection of the palace on the placid water of the Rudrasagar Lake. The dome-shaped miners of the palace have attributed a fort-like look to the mansion. The ‘Darbar Hall’ of the palace even today stands as an epitome of past Royal pomp and grandeur. Rudrasagar Lake covers an area of about 5.3sq.kms and is home to variety of resident as well as migratory birds. Facilities for boating and water sports are available and boat festival is held every year in Rudrasagar in the month of July/August.
