Nestled in the lush green valley dotted with paddy-fields, sparse
human habitation and occasional uplands, Pilak
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.
