A Trip to Giridih

I went to Giridih by road in the month of August 2016. Giridih is a must-visit attraction in the tourism circuit of Jharkhand. The must-visit attractions around Giridih include the Usri Falls, Parasnath Hills and the Jain Museum. The Usri Falls from a height of 39 feet in 3 different streams. The falls are located in the dense Parasnath Valley and the Usri river is a tributary of the Barakar river. A Jain temple is located on top of the Parasnath hills and devotees regularly throng the revered shrine for obeisance from god almighty. This is also a popular trekking spot being located among lush greenery. The Jain Museum is located in Madhuban and is known to contain old and ancient inscriptions and manuscripts. There is also a 2000-year old temple here in the village around Madhuban.
