AGARTALA, Jan 13 (TIWN): With an aim to make the Tirthamukh fair successful and systematic, the decorations for the stalls in the fair have been started. The fair is scheduled to begin from today at the premises of Tirthamukh.

Poush Sankranti fair commonly known as Tirthamukh mela will begin on January 14 and continue for two days.

 Reportedly, this year the fair committee has organized the programme with an estimated budget of around Rs. 14 lakh.

To ensure peaceful celebration at the fair, security personnel were deployed at the premises.

Like every year this year also the Dumbur Tirthamukh Lake is all set to attract the bee storming gathering of the devotees. Previous year a huge number of devotees from all over the state gathered in the area to celebrate the programme. Both tribal and non tribal people assemble every year on the occasion of the Uttarayan Sanskriti for a holy dip in the lake.

On the day of Poush Sankranti this place becomes a confluence of thousands of people. Since ancient days Tirthamukh has been a holy place of the Hindu Tripuri tribals. This place is considered as the sacred Ganga to the people of Tripura.
