The only lake palace in the eastern region, 81-year-old ‘Neermahal', is to get a facelift soon on the recommendations of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Tourism, its Chairman, Mr Sitaram Yechury, said today.

The committee had asked the Tripura Government to prepare a detailed project report for renovation of ‘Neermahal', built as a summer resort by the erstwhile king of Tripura, Maharaja Birbikram Kishore Manikya Bahadur, in 1930.

“The water level of the Rudrasagar, the lake on which ‘Neermahal' is located, has come down due to improper maintenance. I have spoken to the State government officials about the plight of the lake palace and requested them to draw up a plan for revival of its past glory,” Mr Yechury told reporters here.
