#Temple in Ranchi

Jagannath Temple in Ranchi was built by king of Barkagarh Jagannathpur Thakur Ani Nath Shahdeo, during 1691. Completed on Christmas 1691, it is located about 10 km from the main town. The temple is on top of a small hillock.

To reach the top visitors can climb the stairs or take the vehicle route. There are many steps and the climber needs to rest intermittently before resuming. People also take the vehicle route leading directly to the top. The view of the city from the top is breathtaking.

"When in Ranchi do not miss visiting this temple within 5 kms from Ranchi Airport on the hilltop with aura of spirituality and tranquility at early morning hours or late evenings. You can see magnificent city of Ranchi along with International Cricket Stadium, High court complex( under construction)and Vidhan Sabha (under construction). Heavy Engineering Corporation, the mother plant for all steel plants of India is also viewable from hilltop."

"You gonna experience such a divining nd spritual feeling over there. You will feel blessed nd relaxed after darshan of lord Jagarnath. Whenever you visit then see some unusual things about temple like 1. The temple flag located on the top of temple is blowing against the wind. 2. You can't find the shadow of temple. 3. You can easily hear the wave sound of ocean when you are outside of temple but when you start to enter the temple stairs area you can't hear that wave sound. 4. The Prasad ((Khichadi)) made by priest is cooked in 7 containers placed one another and the most interesting thing is that the prasad is firstly prepared in the top container, while it should be the 1st where the flame is."
