A Trip to Hazaribagh

I had been to Hazaribagh by road in the month of August 2016. Hazaribagh is a must-visit in the tourism circuit of Jharkhand. The must-visit attractions around Hazaribagh include the Narsingh Sthan Temple, Kandaver Temple and the Hazaribagh National Park. The Narsingh Sthan Temple is devoted to Lord Vishnu and is just located at a distance of 6 kilometers from Khapriama Village. The Kandaver Temple is located just adjacent to the Barkagaon-Keredari road. The temple is dedicated to goddess Asthabuji Durga and is located among lush greenery, surrounded by forests and in a remote location. The Hazaribagh National Park is located very near to Hazaribagh town and spread over 186 square kilometers. It is located on a hilly terrain and is home to a variety of animals such as Sambhar, Chital, Nilgai and wild bear.

A place to relax

It is a perfect place to relax from our extra fast running lives. It is my home town so it's more perfect for me. Cool weather, less traffic, simple people will just relax you from all the cunningness that we have to face in our daily lives. One must visit this place to relax and forget all the problems for just one time.

Hazaribagh Overview

Hazaribagh city lies in the state of Jharkhand. The word Hazaribagh comes from two words - ‘Hazar’ and ‘bagira’. ‘Hazar’ literally translates to ‘1000’ while ‘bagira’ translates to ‘cat’. Therefore, the literal meaning of the name of the city is the ‘city of 1000 cats’.

Hazaribagh was a cantonment from 1790 to 1884. Hazaribagh flourished under the British Rule and what resulted was a planned city. Today, that part of Hazaribagh is the Boddam Bazaar. Boddam Bazaar is named after the officer by whom it was planned.

The settlement of the Bengali community was another significant event during the British Rule in Hazaribagh in the 19th century. Some of the personalities which played a hand in shaping up Hazaribagh were Ray Bahadur Mukherjee, Manmathanath Dasgupta, Keshub Chander Sen and Rai Bahadur Surendra Nath Roy.

Ray Bahadur Mukherjee is credited with starting the Brahmo Samaj here and a lot of girls’ schools. Hazaribagh is also known to house some important educational institutions of the bygone era. Most of these institutions were started by the Dublin Mission, which worked with the support of Trinity College.

Coal reserves form the major chunk of revenue for this city. In fact, Hazaribagh has the second highest coal reserves in the state of Jharkhand. Coal mining has picked up speed in the recent past and a number of power projects have been undertaken by the government organisations like NTPC and Coal India Limited.

Hazaribagh has a cool climate, with summers being warm and the winters being cold. The temperature during the summer months hovers at about 30-32° Celsius. Other than being home to some important missionaries in the past, Hazaribagh has tourist attractions too.

Some of the tourist attractions of Hazaribagh are the Hazaribagh National park, Canary Hill, Panchmandir and the Narsingh Temple. The Hazaribagh National Park is a protected area which is home to animals like bears, sambhar, leopards, etc. There is also the Barso Pani Cave here to visit. Myth has it that it starts raining every time somebody enters the cave and shouts Barso Pani.

The town of Hazaribagh is linked by road to cities like Ranchi, which is 91 km from Hazaribagh, Gaya at a distance of 130 km, Dhanbad at 128 km, Daltongunj around 198 km away, Patna 235 km and Calcutta at a distance of 434 km through Asansol- Govindapur - Barhi.
