It was Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb’s first ever visit to Chobimura also known as Devtamura ever since he took charge of the BJP-IPFT government.
He said, “My government is putting efforts to generate employment opportunities in the state. I do feel that the tourism sector shall bridge this unemployment issue.”

Chabimura is famous for its panels of rock carvings on the steep mountain wall on the bank of Gomati. There are huge images of Shiva, Vishnu, Kartika, Mahisasurmardini Durga and other Gods and goddesses carved on the rocks.
These images date back to 15th-16th centuries AD. Chabimura is 30 km from Udaipur and 12 km from Amarpur Sub-Division. These beautiful images are curved with a lot of dexterity on the rocky faces of Devtamura which is steep at 90 degrees.
The hill ranges are covered with thick jungles and one can reach this abode of gods only after trekking through these jungles. The road leading to the river bank where the rock cut images exist are itself is a treat to the eye.
