A Trip to Bokaro

I had been to Bokaro by train in the month of August 2016. Bokaro is a must-visit attraction in the tourism circuit of Jharkhand. The must-visit attractions around Bokaro include the Garga Dam and the Bokaro Steel Plant. The Garga Dam is located 12 kilometers from the Bokaro Steel City. It is surrounded by thick green forests and vegetation cover. This is also a perfect destination for watching sun-rise and sun-set. The city of Bokaro was planned and constructed by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru due to the abundant availability of coal, iron ore and manganese here. Incidentally, theBokaro Steel Plant is the 4th largest integrated steel plant of India built with the active support and assistance of the Soviet Union. It has 5 blast furnaces with a combined output capacity of liquid steel estimated to cross 10 MT.
