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.

"Perfect to break free from big city traffic" new review

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
In my recent visit to Jamshedpur from Mumbai, have realised this city has not changed much with time.
It can turnout to be a good vacation away from over crowded and jam packed traffic. It is good for a short stay of 2-3 days beyond that it will be little boring as there is nothing much to offer for visitors. Nevertheless, it does offer a combination of planned township with parks and lakes, industries high chimneys, awesome street food, picturesque hills and silently flowing river and some history of India's industrialization.
The city is relatively small and could be covered entirely if you staying from 2-3 days. Few of the must visit places are Jubilee Park (on the fountains are running), Jubilee lake and amusement park, Dalma hills-there are few resorts at the foot hill, perfect for a day outing. Dimna Lake -Lake on the Subarnrekha river, ideal for quietly sit and stare. Sakchi Market- You get everything here and at a deal price, very famous in nearby towns in village, also serves awesome street food(Sprouts Chana, Ghee litti and Jamal Muri must try), Bistupur- Here where you get all branded stuff, lots of good restaurants and jewelry shops and finally just a drive through the entire city gives a amazing experience.
Other places-Mango bridge, JRD Tata sport complex, Tata Steel plant.
I have enjoyed most of my stay roaming around the markets and hoping around eateries eating some of the mouth watering food, everything at a very good price.
Had walked around the jubilee park in the evening, good for a morning and evening walk. Hired a cab to go dimna and dalma hills the view was amazing
If you are travelling to Jamshedpur, make sure you book a hotel in sakchi as everything is equidistant from there and it has lot of shopping and eating option. Also, it is safe and convenient if you are retiring late as most of the city parts shuts down by 9:30-10pm, A short stay would be good, do not expect too many hangout options. Carry cash in hand as most of the place either do not accept cards or have a min purchase amount. You can travel in shared auto, cheapest option for commuting. Do not stay out very late in the night as most areas gets empty and not safe.

"Nice Planned City"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
The place has special value for me cause early in my career I was travelling frequently for work here. So whenever I get a chance to go to this city I grab with both hand make the trip as long as possible. United Club is best place to sit in the evening till night 11 PM for drinks and dinner. Though I go there most of time for work but I keep memories much beyond it.

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.

"Superb visit with beautiful views"

  • 7.0/7
  • 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.

There is dam, river, wildlife, forests, zoo, city, big bazaar, and lot of other adventure you can enjoy. Just pack bags and leave. Bistupur and Sakshi market are the must going places. Must eat dosa in Anand restaurant. It's a classic place, I have been visiting from so long.

"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.
