AGARTALA, April 15 (TIWN): Thousands of pilgrims thronged to 500 years old ancient Matabari also known as Ma Tripura Sundari temple on Saturday on the occasion of Bengali New Year or Pohela Baishakh. Since 5 AM devotees were observed in queues to offer ‘bhogs’ to Ma Tripura Sundari. More than 100 of stalls have been set up there and poor men, women were found selling ‘Haldis’, Flowers etc to the devotees. The rituals with Hal-khata are also on the peak for the whole day, with many people are starting their new vehicles, business on the day. Thousands of devotees took holy bath in Kalyan Sagar, the lake of Matabari. Tripura Sundari Temple is situated in the ancient Udaipur, about 55 km from capital city Agartala, considered as the holiest place in the state & from every corners devotees rush to Matabari before they begin a new journey of life. Either marriage or joining a job, there is no alternative of taking blessing from Ma Tripura Sundari for Tripura people. There would be hardly any visitor from Central Ministers to NRIs that do not visit Tripura Sundari temple when they come in Tripura.

Matabari is considered to be one of the 51 Shakti Peeths, consists of a square type sanctum of the typical Bengali hut. Again some historians claim that Ma Tripura Sundari temple is a model developed in Buddism era and Buddhist Mogs (a tribal Community) believes that Ma Tripurasundari belongs to their Goddess.

However, above all, she is the Goddess and Mother of Tripura, known as Tripureswari. Ultimately she symbolizes as the power to fight against evil.

Tripurainforway’s journey began to fight against corruption and  the Evil power. Thanks to all readers and our followers and to all each and every persons fighting against corruption, going beyond all politics, fear and the chain of system. Hope the year bring prosperity & growth.
