The Tripura government has renamed two locations in the state in Kokborok.

The easternmost town in Tripura – Gandachera and highest hill range in the state – Atharamura have been renamed in Kokborok.

These two places in Tripura were renamed on Wednesday on the occasion of 44th Kokborok Day.

Tripura chief minister Biplab Deb announced his government’s decision to rename these two important locations of the state.
