    What Makes It Awesome

    If you are visiting Tripura, one thing which you should not miss is the Rajbari National Park. Situated in the Trishna Wildlife Sanctuary, it is one of the lesser known national parks but the place is certainly worth a visit for its concentration of bison.

So make sure you are carrying enough ammo if you're going there for a good collection of photos.

    The Bison reserve was established in the Trishna sanctuary to protect the endangered species. The reserve's primary objective was to restore the natural living habitat of the Bison. It also helped in tightening laws which can protect them from poachers. The sanctuary has a lot many water bodies and rivulets present, which act as a source of water for the reserve. But all you need to do is just open your shoes, dip your feet in the water and just listen to the song of the trees and birds. Very few places can offer you such serenity.

    The area is filled with herbs, shrubs, tree species, climbers etc. To be exact, there are 230 trees, 110 shrubs, 150 climbers and 400 herbs found in the sanctuary.

Birdwatchers should keep their binoculars at hand all the time, for you can spot the White-breasted Kingfisher, Indian Black Drongo, Pheasant-tailed Jacana, Tailorbird, Jungle Myna, Hornbill and other such exquisite species.
