Jamshedpur Tourism

The largest city in Jharkhand, Jamshedpur is an aesthetically planned township with an appealing infrastructure and landscape. Juxtaposed against the beautiful Dalma Hills, Jamshedpur is the world's eighth-largest steel manufacturing company, along with being India's first planned city.

The town of Jamshedpur was named after Jamshetiji Tata in 1919, the founder of the Tata industries that maintain public services and infrastructure of most parts of the city. Known as the 'Steel City', Jamshedpur is the quintessential example of the boon of industrialisation in a developing nation. Being the largest city in Jharkhand, the main attractions in Jamshedpur are the vast, tree-lined Jubilee Park (housing Tata Zoological Park with species like tigers and leopards), the hill-top Bhuvaneshwari Temple, and the Dalma Wildlife Sanctuary (home to resident elephants).

With its industrial growth, Jamshedpur has made its place in the map of world business along with playing a very important role in industrialising India. The founders day of Jamshedpur is celebrated on October 3 every year at Jubilee Park, which is decked up with lights and colours for the occasion.

History of Jamshedpur

Discovered by Jamshedji Nusserwanji Tata (J.R.D. Tata) and thus named after him, Jamshedpur is considered to be the first planned industrial city of India. This city was initially known as ‘Sakchi’. J.R. D. Tata was inspired by Thomas Carlyle who said, "The nation which gains control of iron soon acquires the control of gold." Thus, he believed that a strong base in steel production would affect the economy of India mainly and it will progress. He got in touch with geologists and with their help he located the most suitable in India to set up an industry. In April 1904, a site rich in iron, coal, limestone and water was discovered by Dorabji Tata and his companions Shapurji Saklatvala and C.M. Weld. They found all of these in a village called Sakchi on the Chhota Nagpur Plateau. The construction of the steel plant began in the year 1908 and completed on 16 February 1912.

I hail from Jamshedpur, and so this town will always be to me the most beautiful place in the world. Ranked among the cleanest places in India, Jamshedpur is a small, yet homely settlement. The JRD Tata Sports Complex, situated in the backyard of my school, is till date one of the best stadiums I have ever seen. The available facilities cater to almost all fields of sports. Jubilee Park is one of the most beloved spots where people of the town conglomerate. If you are in Jamshedpur on Founders Day, i.e. March 3, make sure to visit Jubilee Park which is adorned with a brilliant display of lights. I have frequented Dimna Lake during my childhood, and would highly advise those looking for solitude to visit here. Nobody is a stranger in Jamshedpur. Everybody knows everybody. Locals are extremely amiable, so do not hesitate to knock on anyone's door for help.
