Jamshedpur

Jamshedpur, also known as ‘Steel City’ and ‘Tata Nagar’ is a bustling city in Jharkhand.

This industrial city was founded by late Jamshedji Nusserwanji Tata. In 1904, he went to Pittsburgh to enlist geologist Charles Page Perin’s help to locate the site of India's first steel plant. After a three year long search, they zeroed in on a village called Sakchi. Tata commissioned Durrell & Co to build a mill, a brick-making plant, an office building, a hospital and over 400 workers' houses. And India’s Steel City was born.

Today, Jamshedpur is home to industrial giants like Tata Steel, Tata Motors, Tata Power, Lafarge Cement, Telcon and many more. Its industrial zone, Adityapur houses more than 800 small and medium scale industries. And that’s not all. A survey conducted by the government of India declared Jamshedpur the 7th cleanest city of India and the 7th richest city of India.

Jamshedpur enjoys a temperate climate. Summers are extremely hot with May and June bearing the brunt of the mercury. Then comes the monsoon season and the city receives heavy rainfall. Winters are mild and pleasant. So the best time to visit the city is between October and April

Places to see:
Jubilee Park - Tata Steel gifted this park to the citizens of Jamshedpur when it completed 50 years. It was inaugurated by Jawaharlal Nehru in 1956. The park is spread over 225-acres and has a rose garden and a lake. Beautiful avenues lines with Ashok trees, fountains and water cascades make it a tourists’ delight.

Tata Steel Zoological Park – The zoo is located in Jubilee Park. The 'Safari Park' in the zoo enables visitors to take a drive through a wooded area where animals roam free and uncaged. You can visit the Nature Education Centre, walk along the Nature Trail or even take a boat ride in the Jubilee Lake.
