Ranchi is the capital of Jharkhand. Most travellers are surprised by how beautiful the city is because they haven’t seen it yet. With its simple way of life and natural history, this city has a way of warming the heart and drawing people in. There are many waterfalls, temples, and scenic points of view in the city, so there are a lot of places to see. We’ve made a list of all the best places to visit in Ranchi to make things easier and help you plan your trip.
The Jagannath Temple looks a lot like the temple in Puri, which is the first thing you notice about it. This 17th-century shrine is about 10 km from the main city. It is one of the most popular places in the city, so many tourists go there. The Ratha Yatra, which happens every year from June to July, is by far the best time to visit the temple. Since the temple is built on a hill, you will have to climb several stairs to get there. After you’ve asked for blessings, don’t forget to take a few minutes to look out over the city from the top.
Ranchi Lake is in the middle of the city. It was dug out by the British Colonel Onsely in 1842. This lake has plenty of room for family picnics and boat rides, making it a great place to spend a calm evening. The lake is at the bottom of Ranchi Hill, which is another great place to visit in the city. On top of the hill is a small Shiv Mandir. From the top of the hill, you get a great view of the whole city.
One of the most popular places for tourists to go in Ranchi is the Rock Garden. Rocks from Gonda Hill were used to make it. It looks even better because it is on a small hill near the Kanke Dam. You can’t miss the interesting iron footbridge here, which is held up by only two poles and is a sight to see. The garden is a great place to have a picnic because it has small waterfalls, beautiful statues, and sculptures.
The Rock Garden is close to Kanke Dam, so it is best to visit both places at the same time. Slowly, the dam has become one of the best places to go in Ranchi. Evenings and weekends are the best times to go. This is a great place to relax after a long week or have a picnic because it is surrounded by rolling hills and has beautiful views of the city.
When you first see the Sun Temple in Ranchi, it is a real eye-catcher. The temple is on top of a hill and is built in the style of a Sun temple. It looks like a huge chariot with 18 wheels that is pulled by seven horses. In addition to the statue of the Sun God, the shrine has statues of many other Hindu gods and goddesses. It also has a sacred pond. Every day, a lot of tourists go to the temple, which is one of the most popular places to visit in Ranchi.
Tagore Hill is named for the famous poet Rabindranath Tagore because people think he spent a lot of time there. This place, which is also called Moradabad Hill, is a great spot to enjoy the clear blue sky and beautiful views of the city. The hill is a lot of fun for people who like to try out new things. People can walk and climb the rocks here. At the foot of the hill is the Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama. It’s where the Agrarian Vocational Institute and Divyaya have their main offices.
Pahari Mandir, which is on top of Ranchi Hill at a height of 2140 feet, has the best views of the city. All year long, a lot of people who worship Shiva come here, especially during the month of Shravan, which is usually between July and August. People also respect the temple because they believe it has the power to make their wishes come true. Nearly 400 steps must be climbed to get to the temple.
State Museum Hotwar
The State Museum Hotwar was once called the Ranchi Museum. It has displays of ethnographic items, arms and ammunition, artifacts, and jewellery that show the history of the state. The sculpture gallery is the best part of the museum. It has some beautiful pieces and a lot of interesting pictures of architecture from all over Jharkhand. This museum is a great place for history buffs to learn about the state’s long and interesting past.
Ranchi has a city park called Nakshatra Van. It is right in front of the Governor House (Raj Bhawan). Based on the unique idea of Nakshatras, the park is split into different areas that each represent a sign of the Zodiac and a celestial body. Hindu astrologers also think that each constellation is linked to a tree that has medicinal, aesthetic, social, and economic value. Exploring the park based on your star sign is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you don’t want to miss. The park is beautiful because of the musical fountain and the paths around it. Most of the time, the best time to visit is in the evening.
Dassam Falls is one of the most popular places for tourists to visit in Jharkhand. It is about 40 km from the city. The fall’s falling water is mesmerizing and a treat for photographers and people who love nature. When this waterfall is at its best, you can see 10 streams of water falling into the plunge pool. This is one of the most interesting things about it. As tourism has slowly grown, more restaurants and clean bathrooms have opened up in the area, making it much easier to visit than it used to be.
Jonha Falls is one of the places that have become a symbol for the city they are in. The first time you see these hanging valley falls, they will take your breath away and stay with you long after you leave. The Gunga and Raru rivers meet and fall from a height of 141 feet, making for some of the most beautiful scenery. Even though a lot of tourists go there every day, it isn’t crowded at all, and you can easily find a quiet place to enjoy your time.
The Patratu Valley is a great place to go on vacation if you like long, winding roads that look out over a beautiful valley. The drive from Ranchi to the valley is probably the best stretch of road in the whole state of Jharkhand. The drive is even more exciting because of the S-turns, hairpins, and swooping corners, as well as the beautiful views. You have to stop at the Patratu Dam, which is just as beautiful and a great place to have a picnic.
Hundru Falls in Ranchi is one of the 50 highest waterfalls in India and should be on your list. Like the many other falls in the area, this one also draws people in with its beautiful scenery. It’s one of the most visited places in Ranchi, especially during the rainy season when the waterfall is at its best. But even when it’s not raining, this is a beautiful place to have a picnic and see some of the best views of the Chota Nagpur Plateau.
Birsa Zoological Park
If you are travelling with kids, the Birsa Zoological Park is a great place to go. The park is home to a lot of different kinds of animals, like tigers, lions, and deer. If you are interested in wildlife, you can learn a lot about the wildlife in the area and even adopt an animal here. At the front of the zoo, there is a small canteen that sells snacks and drinks.
Panch Gagh Falls
The Panch Gagh Falls are a little bit outside of the city, but people who live there love them, and many picnickers go there. The waterfall gets its name from the fact that you can see five drops from here. If you come here on the weekend, you’ll see many locals enjoying the beauty and quiet of the falls. You have to take the stairs to get here, so be careful if you are travelling with kids.
