About Jamshedpur
Jamshedpur though being primarily an Industrial city has also started to attract tourists. It has the benefit of being near a hill and forest range hence it serves as a nodal point for all the further destinations. Some of the major tourist attractions of the city are Jubilee park which was a gift by Tata Steel to the citizens of Jamshedpur on the completion of its 50 years. Dimna Lake is an artificial reservoir and one of the main sources for the city's drinking water. Dalma Hills are north of the Subarnarenkha river, they stretch 16 km from east to west.

The other important ones are Tata Steel Zoological Park, Chandil Dam, Rivers Meet, Hudco Lake, Centre for Excellence (CE), Sir Dorabji Tata Park, Moolgaokar Park, Bhuvneswari Temple and others.

Jamshedpur was earlier known as Sakchi and it was in 1918 that Sakchi was renamed to Jamshedpur in tribute to its founder Jamshedji Nusserwanji Tata. It was believed that at the turn of nineteenth century, Jamshedji Tata had gone to Pittsburgh and asked the geologist to help him find a site to build his dream which was India's first Steel Company.
It took nearly three years to find a suitable land which was rich in natural resources. The land was finally found and called as Sakchi, now part of Tatanagar, on the densely forested stretches of the Chhota Nagpur plateau.
