Tripura Castle Experience
Tripura Castle is a heritage hotel in Shillong, capital of Meghalaya at about 150 kms from Guwahati. Built in the early 1920s, it’s a kind of a royal home with tiered gardens collection of orchids, the rose gardens dating back to World War II. The interior features period furniture that exudes a heritage character.
Within Tripura Castle, there a wonderful collection of artwork and antiques collected over the years. Centuries old Chinese furniture, art deco and Victorian objets d'art, blend in with paintings and photographs by members of the royal family. The warm tones of wood, cane and brass are the architectural refrain.
The blend of European and Oriental influences that is the hallmark of the Castle, has been subtly worked into the Hotel. The large private library has several rare manuscripts and valuable first editions. A serpentine road lined with pine trees, bamboo groves and cherry blossoms leads up to the hotel add to the overall experience.
