Pilak

Nestled in the lush green valley dotted with paddy-fields, sparse human habitation and occasional uplands, PBishnu, Pilakilak in South Tripura's Belonia subdivision holds the key to Tripura's ancient history. Pilak in Tripura is a place of attraction for its archaeological remains of 8th & 9th centuries AD. Located at a distance of 100 km from Agartala in Tripura, Pilak seems like a shrine of Hindu and Buddhist art. The Hindu and Buddhist Sculpture can be seen at its best here. The area displays numerous terracotta plaques, sealing with Supa and sltone images of Avolokiteswara, including the images of Narasimhan, found there dating back to Buddhist period. The images found here reflect survival of heterodox creeds and sects portraying both Hinduism and Buddhism. Pilak is closely associated with Mynamoti and Paharpur in Bangladesh. Recently, further excavation has been taken up by Archaeological Survey of India to know more about the region and its history.
