About ranchi

With its old-world charm, Ranchi mesmerizes you with its ancient, imposing temples like the Sun Temple, Pahari Mandir, Jagannathpur Temple besides others. The capital of the Indian state of Jharkhand, it has a decently sizeable tribal population with major parts covered by dense forest area. One of its nicknames is ‘Manchester of the East’ due to its natural mineral resources which count for nearly 18% of the national mineral production. Another of its sobriquets is ‘City of Waterfalls’, because of its numerous waterfalls.\r\n\r\nThe area at the bottom of the Hundru Falls is a popular picnic spot. One can explore the Jonha Falls, also known as Gautamdhara and there is the Dassam Falls or Dassam Gagh and the Hirni Falls. Ranchi has a Rock Garden, aka Kanke Dam, which was hewn out of the rocks of Gonda Hill. Explore Nakshatra Van or Lunar Mansion, which is situated in the heart of the City. Walk around the Jharkhand War Memorial, a tribute to the soldiers of Jharkhand who sacrificed their lives for the country since Independence.
