Welcome to Ranchi

Set on a plateau at 700m and marginally cooler than the plains, Jharkhand’s capital, Ranchi, was the summer capital of Bihar under the British. Apart from the Jagannath Temple, there’s little of interest here for travellers, but the city acts as a gateway to Betla (Palamau) National Park, and there are numerous waterfalls you can visit in the surrounding countryside
