Jamshedpur Travel Guide, India
Jamshedpur is the most prominent industrial towns of Jharkhand. The city is known not only for its industrial importance but also for its spectacular beauty.
One of the most vital reasons for the popularity of the city is its location. The city has a population of a million, most of which are associated with the Tatas.
Jamshedpur is the first planned city of India. When Jamshedji Tata wanted to build a steel plant in India, he wanted to build an entire township with it. He wanted an Eco-friendly city and achieved this dream by carefully planning the city and ensuring the construction of large gardens and sufficient water resources. The city is well connected to the rest of the country by rail, road and air. Jamshepur is known as the green city of India and efforts are continually being made to make this city better. In fact, the city has won the 2004 Global Compact City award from the UN in India.
Jamshedpur is home to India’s first private steel plant; therefore, much of the economy is dependent on it. The steel plant is large enough and still covers around a fourth of the land area of Jamshedpur. Even though the Tata Steel is the most influential plant here, others like ABB, TCS, L&T, S&L, SMS, Danielle, Italiam Pianti have also come into the city. There has been major development in the recent years as Tata has expanded its ventures and companies that are more new have come in.
The city, though essentially an industrial town is home to large markets. Some of the popular ones are Bistupur, Sakchi Bazaar, Kadma Market and Jugsalai. Other tourist destinations include the Jubilee Park, The Dimna Lake, The Dalai Hills and the Hudco Lake. Most outstanding of these is the Jubilee Park that was made by Jamshedji Tata on the 50th anniversary of the Tata Steel Plant. It is on one the most attractive parks of the city with landscapes, lakes, fountains and water cascades. There is also a zoo in which visitors can take a safari.
The city has perhaps one of the highest literacy rates in the country. The Tatas contribute immensely to this by opening new schools.
