Nice place with scenic beauty

My suggestion is not to visit. The place is nice with scenic beauty but the Local Natives are very hostile, they are very poor, with literally no income, so they always target tourists for money.Starting from cab driver, local shop owner etc everyone unnecessarily harasses tourists for money. If you are going by train, auto owner/sumo driver demands money as per their wish and if one driver denies no one will take you to hotels, so to reach hotel you have to give whatever they demands.Please don't ever think of visiting there by driving own vehicle, as roads are very narrow, and villagers come in front of vehicle, acts like he has been hit by your car and the entire pre planned drama begins. One person jumped in front of my car, good luck I controlled my car, he has not been touched by my car, but he acted like he has been injured by my car, within 5 mins all locals surrounded us and started demanding money. They demanded lump sum of Rs 10, 000. When denied they started damaging my vehicle, so unfortunately we had to give 5000 to get out of that place. In one word my suggestion please try to avoid visiting that terrain, as there are Maoists no more, but people still have that mentality with nil source income.

Adventure on hill

3 barren hills with a stair to the top for one of the hills which has Jai Chandi temple on top of it. Need stamina to climb up the hill of around 500 steps. Few stalls in the area selling tea and cold drinks, packet snacks. View from the top is worth the visit.

Beautiful place to visit

A good place to plan for a day. It's remind you the Satyajit Ray's shooting spot of the movie Hirok Rajar Deshe... The hill has a thousand of steps by ladder to climb on the top, & their is two temples. View from the top, just make you speechless.. Their is some other hills without ladder, you have to climb it by rope. It's a naturally beautiful place.

The view point of Purulia

Walk up the steps which counts approximately 400 in numbers to make your reach to the hill top which has a temple devoted to Lord Shiva. To add to the excitement this hill provides a bird's eye view of the entire town of Purulia and adds an aesthetic value to the visit!

Has a good panoramic view

Small hill, stairs to ascend about 400 nos. On the top there is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. The panoramic view of the town and temple like Joychandi Railway Stn. Is visible.
