Jamshedpur is situated on the Chota Nagpur Plateau in the East Singhbhum District of Jharkhand. Previously, it was under the township of Sakchi, which was re-named Jamshedpur in 1919. As the town is home to a large steel industry, Jamshedpur is called the ‘Steel City’. Since it was founded by the late Jamshedji Nusserwanji Tata, it is also called Tata Nagar.

Jamshedpur is a planned industrial city, surrounded by the Dalma Hills and the rivers Subarnarekha and Kharkai. It is also home to the Tata Football Academy (TFA), which was started in 1987 by the Tatas to train and find new talent in football. Jamshedpur is also known for the Tata Archery Academy. Jamshedpur won the 2004 Global Compact City award by the United Nations for being one of the fastest developing cities in the world.

Attractions in Jamshedpur include the Tata Steel Zoological Park, Dalma Hills, Hudco Lake, and Pardih Kali Mandir. There is a zoo close to the Jubilee Park. It is known for its Safari Park, which gives visitors a closer view of wild animals. An annual flower show is held in December at Sir Dorabji Tata Park, which is visited by many tourists and locals alike.

The Dalma Hills, which are famous for wild elephant, stretch over 16 km from east to west, north of the Subarnarekha River. The Dalma Hills have always attracted trekkers and mountain climbers. There is a lake called Dimna Lake, which is an artificial reservoir, popular for its water sports like jet-skiing, diving and rowing. It is the main source of drinking water for locals.

The confluence of the rivers Kharkai and Subarnarekha is a popular picnic spot. The Pardih Kali Mandir, temple of the Goddess Kali, and Hudco Lake are the other popular places.  Hudco Lake is a man-made lake that also has an artificial waterfall.

Tourists can hire a taxi or explore Jamshedpur by local transport such as auto rickshaws. As for shopping there is not much tourists can buy which is distinct to the region. However, areas like the Sector Market and Bistupur have shops that sell clothes and electronics, and they also have a variety of restaurants that offer different cuisine.

Jamshedpur can be reached by flights to Kolkata and Ranchi. While the airport at Ranchi is 150 km away, the international airport at Kolkata is almost 300 km away. Jamshedpur is also well connected by trains connecting the city to major destinations like Guwahati, Kolkata, Delhi, Thiruvananthapuram and Chennai. Buses are also available from Kolkata to Jamshedpur.

The best time to visit Jamshedpur is from October to April.

Jamshedpur(formerly Tatanagar) is an industrial city. City is situated around the steel plant. Jamshed ji Tata built the foundation of the plants. Local peoples are of very kind nature. Near by is wildlife century. Tata zoological park is another attraction. Local foods like Chooka baati, Chicken paratha are the most famous among.

  • Posted Jan 7, 2016
I visited Jamshedpur with my friends in our college vacation. We visited many places like Jubliee lake, Dimna lake, Bhubaneswari Temple, Dalma wildlife Sanctuary, Tata Steel Zoological park, Jayanti Sarowar. Lakes were very beautiful. We ate Roti and Tadka, Aloo kata, Satu Roti, Pander chilli, mushroom chilli, panipuri and peda. Satu roti and Tadka were very delicious and nutrious. So, friends must visit Jamshedpur.

"An official trip to Jamshedpur"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Oct 27, 2015
I went at Jamshedpur for official purpose so though it was Durga Puja time & both Ranchi & Jamshedpur were dressed up in festive mood, I can't enjoy the season. However staying at the city during this time was good. The city is very clean & organised. Also on-line booking Cabs are easily available.

It is not a big city but interesting things is there. Most of people are busy during hole day. Tata steel factory is one of the mind blowing thing around Jamshedpur. Transportation facility is also very good. I spent there for three month and enjoy most of time.

"Ideal place to be not far away from Kolkata"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 30, 2015
This city hosts the likes of park, zoo, natural beauty, good food, sightseeing, Shirdi Sai temple, plenty of greenery and natural beauty. It's hardly 3. 5 hours by train from Howrah and tickets are available in Jan Shatabdi like trains. Although Ispat runs a daily service from Howrah, Janshatabdi is less occupied.

"Without a second thought, go for a vacation to Jamshedpur"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Nov 2, 2014
Jamshedpur is a four hour journey away from Kolkata. It was established by the Tata’s and the city is filled with various symbols and images of Tata stalwarts. Apart from renowned schools like Loyola and Sacred Heart Convent, it is home to XLRI and TFA (Tata Football Academy) It is a very well-planned city surrounded by hills and lakes. It has all the modern facilities to make your stay comfortable. If you have a couple of days in hand and need a break from the hustle and bustle of a metropolis, then Jamshedpur (or Jampot, as some affectionately like to call it) is the perfect place for a quick escape. In Jamshedpur there are several interesting places to visit. You must visit the Jublee Park and the watch the Laser Fountain Show there. You can do boating in the serene Dimna Lake. If you the adventurous type you can go for trekking on the Dalma Hills. During Durga Puja, the city is decorated with lights and dotted with artistic pandals which make a trip to this city even more exciting.

The city has some wonderful restaurants and you will find a wide range of cuisines here. For traditional Italian food one must go to Little Italy in Centre Point Hotel. Buffet lunch served at The Regent is very good. For those who love south Indian food, Anand and Dosa King are perfect. My favourite places were Relish, Nuggets and Brubeck, both of which serve delicious baked food like lemon tarts, fruit cakes and pastries. The city has 5 star hotels as well as Clubs like Beldih Club and United Club and you will never run out of stuff to do there. I stayed in Beldih Club which has a clay tennis court, a squash court, a gym and a swimming pool. It even has a golf course. United club has an American alley bowling gallery. So during my stay I took played various sports which helped me blow off steam. I also went for jogging in the morning to JRD sports complex which has one of the largest rubber athletics tracks in the world. If you want to travel to Jampot, you can travel by train from Kolkata. Two-way AC chair car tickets in steel express will cost you Rs 900 approx. A stay in Alcor, which is a 5 star hotel, will cost at least Rs 2000 per day. A buffet lunch in The Regent will cost Rs 400. But several economical options are also available. For instance, the Ginger Hotel, a Tata enterprise, offers reasonable rates. You can book a car for your daily travelling. Indigo costs Rs 1000 for a day. You can also stay in resorts like 10th Milestone which is economical and located very close to Dalma Hills. For those of you who like to travel to off-beat places, Jamshedpur is perfect! So without a second thought, go for a vacation to Jamshedpur next time.

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Sep 12, 2014
It is so good place but not for picnics and enjoy or tourists place. It famous for Tata company. It so warm place but I like Jamshedpur. Not so good for higher education but one of the famous management college is there. And one private engineering college is RVS engineering college. And no much best hotel. Zoos is there of Tata company at shakchi. I like that zoo.
