History of agartala

One of the earliest rulers of Agartala was Patardan in 1900 B.C. Other notable leaders were Drikpati, Loknath Jivandharan, Chitrarath and Dharmapha. These kings ruled much before the Manikya Dynasty. The state was also governed by the Moghuls and was taken over by the British in 1808. \nThe city wasn't always the capital of Tripura. It was named the capital city in 1849 by the last king of the state, Maharaj Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya Bahadur. This decision was taken so Tripura could maintain easy communication with the British government in Bengal. The same king is also considered to be the founder of the modern city that Agartala is today. \nDuring India's independence, people of the state started a movement known as 'Ganamukti Parishad.' It aimed towards the state being named as the Kingdom of India. The queen at the time, Maharani Kanchanprava Devi, signed an agreement, merging the state with the free nation. Tripura was first a Union Territory, and it only recently (1972) received the status of a state.
