About Jharkhand

Jharkhand

The state of Jharkhand is located in eastern India and came into existence in the year 2000 by reorganizing the southern regions of Bihar state. Jharkhand has common borders with Bihar in the north, Uttar Pradesh and Chhattisgarh in the west, Orissa in the south, and West Bengal in the east.

 

The Chota Nagpur Plateau forms most of the area of Jharkhand. The plateau is the source of many rivers including Damodar, Koel and Subarnarekha. This area is also famous for its abundant mineral wealth - iron, coal, uranium, graphite, and magnite are among the minerals found here.

 

Jamshedpur, Bokaro aand Ranchi are centres of heavy industry based on these mineral resources.

 

Forests and woodlands cover a significant 29 percent of the state. Asian elephant, tiger and bison are among the inhabitants of these forests. Betla National Park in Palamu district and Hazaribagh Wildlife Sanctuary have a rich variety of flora and fauna.

 

Almost one-third of the population of Jharkhand belongs to indigenous tribal communities - Santhal, Oraon, Munda, Chero and Gond are the important ones. These tribal groups are known for their different languages (such as Santhali, Mundari, Khariya, Panchparagnia) and festivals (Sarhul, Karma, Sohrai, Badna).

 

Ranchi is the capital city of Jharkhand, earlier it was the summer capital of Bihar during the British rule. Ranchi is a famous tourist destination in the region, and has a number of beautiful waterfalls, especially after the rains; Hirni Falls, Jonha Falls, Hundru Falls and Dassam Falls are the most famous. The 17th-century Hindu Jagannath Temple is a replica of the famous temple at Puri in Orissa. The Parasnath Hill in Hazaribagh District is named after the Jain Tirthankar Parshvnath and one of the most sacred pilgrimage spots for Jains. Baidyanath Dham is located in the Santhal Paraganas district and is an important pilgrimage for the Hindus. The plateau of Netarhat is popularly called the 'Queen of Chhota Nagpur' and is attractive for its cool climes.

"Good destination to visit"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Apr 16, 2016
The beauty of river Subarnarekha is memorable. Specially during the sunset time near Rajbari. Writer Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay was liking this place for peaceful environment. The writer used to place Phool Dungri hills for writing his story and novels. You Must visit birthplace of write Ramamohana, Burudi lake, Rankini Temple and the village "Teranga". Only two days is sufficient for visit this place. Water of this place is very healthy and good for digestion. Samosa, Jalebi and Kalakand you can try. Ratan sweets is famous in Ghatsila. Don't go out in the night. Try to avoid visit mid of March to June due to heat wave and temperature goes about 45 degree centigrade. You will get smell of Mouha while travelling near by forest.

"Nice place to visit"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 16, 2016
The sight of the captive elephants and the animal rescue center with plenty of Cheetal and Shambar is enough to give you a feel of the wild at the entry point itself. The bamboo hut and the museum with details of the wildlife richness of Dalma Wildlife Sanctuary at Makulakocha is also a excellent watch for any wildlife enthusiast. For entering through the Makulakocha Check post, it is mandatory to obtain prior permission from the office of the Dalma Wildlife Sanctuary situated at Mango, Jamshedpur. As this location is very near from the township of Jamshedpur it has turned out to be a favourite spot for the picnickers over a period of time. As there is no specific eateries available barring a single tea shop out side the check gate, it is advisable to carry your breakfast and lunch but the facilities of kitchen is available in the forest bungalow and the bamboo hut if you are willing to refresh your cooking skills in the wild. If you want to spend a calm and peaceful weekend, it is one of the best destination, as you can have a stroll around the thick vegetation for a calm and quite morning walk and have a great day in watching the rescued animals kept inside the animal rescue center. A beautiful small museum with the detailing of the rich wildlife presence of the Dalma hills is also going to provide you some thoughtful moments while walking through different exhibits. Overall, a wonderful destination to recharge your thoughts in a lush green wilderness over the weekends.

"Mind blowing Jharkhand"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Dec 28, 2015
Jharkhand is located in the lap of nature. Away from the hassles of metro cities, this place gives internal peace to mind and soul. Right time to visit this place is from November to March period. Adventure seekers and honeymoon couples will definitely like this destination.

There are many places to visit. Like Palamu Plateau, Hazaribagh Hills, Rajrappa Temple, Ranchi Hill stations are the eye catching places. National sanctuary and biological park at Bokaro and Hazaribagh are also must watch.

Local fast food called huskies are very delicious and it increases your appetite for the same. Litti chokha has no substitutes in the ready to eat homemade food category.

Pilgrimages places like Baba Baidyanath dham is one of the twelve jyotirlinga of lord Shiva. Rajrappa Temple is famous among Maaa Durga devotees. It is situated along the banks of River Damodar and surrounded by lush green forests and mountains. It also offers as a perfect picnic spot. Also in the Palamu Plateaus there is the facilities available of ropeway and other several adventurous activities such as part sailing, paragliding etc.

Jharkhand is connected to rest of the country through road, rail and air. Birsa Munda Airport in Ranchi is connected to all the major cities of India and several airlines operates from here. Several trains including Rajdhani, Shatabdi, Mails and express trains run through the breadth and width of Jharkhand and also connects it to the rest of part. NH 33 and other state highways facilitates smoother transportation by road. There is no any such must carry items you have to carry along as there are plenty of markets available near all the tourist places and they too offer items at a cheaper rates. Overall Jharkhand is much cheaper as compared to other states.
