It has extensive international border with Bangladesh and, in fact, 85% of its perimeter is international border with rest being common boundary with Assam and Mizoram to the east. There is a common belief that the name of the state has originated from the presiding deity 'TRIPURA SUNDARI'. Another theory is that the name of the state was originally 'TUIPRA' - meaning a land adjoining water.
