Ujjayanta Palace has been unveiled as the largest museum in the entire northeast. The Palace was originally built in 1862 by the then king of Tripura.  However, a massive quake in June 1897 devastated the entire structure. The present structure that houses the largest museum was built by Maharaja Radha Kishore Manikya during 1899–1901. The grandiose neo-classical style palace built as the royal residence of the kings of the Manikya Dynasty covers more than 800 acres of space. It was also the Tripura Legislative Assembly from 1972 till 2011.
