Local folk dances of Tripura/Agartala include the Garia and Lebang Boomani dance among others. Garia is performed during the season of seed cultivation and Lebang (named after a type of insect) is performed right before the monsoon season to celebrate the annual visit of insects which come in search of sown seeds. \n\nThe locals love crafting artifacts with bamboo and crane, which is also very popular in India and abroad. Their work includes mats, bags, baskets, etc. Many local tribes around the city still build homes with bamboos. Intricately carved jewelry is another popular craftmanship of the city. \n\nTripuri folk music is known as Tipra Bharot. Their folk music sings of traditions, festivals, harvesting, love and wedding songs. Owing to its proximity to Bangladesh, Agartala's culture is highly influenced by that of the Bengalis. The locals enthusiastically celebrate Durga and Saraswati Pujas. Other local festivals are Kharchi (cleansing of sins) and Garia Puja (ethnic tribe carnival). The city boasts of innumerable temples and Buddhist pilgrimage sites.
