Khowai District : Tripura

About District

The Khowai was created in the year 2012 and the district derives its name from the namesake river which virtually bifurcates the subdivision. In fact, life in the lush green and fertile Khowai valley, sandwiched on eastern and western sides by lateral extension of the Atharomura and Barmura hill ranges is sustained by the Khowai river and its abundant water resources that glide quietly through the subdivision into neighbouring Bangladesh. Spread over 1377 square KMs of undulating hills and plains with a population of 3,70,793, Khowai district and its name sake headquarter is historically known for protracted political struggle of the indigenous tribal people for emancipation from princely misrule and exploitation from the middle of forties to the early fifties in the last century. Even now life and society in Khowai is synonymous with cultural activities and trends that inspire the whole of Tripura. The district comprises two subdivisions, Khowai itself and Teliamura, six blocks known as Teliamura block, Kalyanpur block, Padmabil block, Khowai block, Tulasikhar block and Mugiakami block. Apart from its longstanding reputation as a centre of culture, Khowai district is also endowed with a fairly rich infrastructure that provide timely and efficient services to the people.
