Digital facelift for Tripura museum
The over-a-century-old Ujjayanta Palace of Tripura’s Manikya Kings, which houses the State museum, would be equipped with digital galleries in a bid to boost tourism, a State Minister said on Monday. The palace, built by Maharaja Radha Kishore Manikya during 1899-1901, served as the State Assembly till 2011. “We would soon install digital galleries in the museum, which would make use of projectors. I think this initiative would also attract more tourists in the museum and help promote industry in the State,” Higher Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath said.
