Pahari Mandir, Ranchi

4.3
#2 of 9 in Historic Sites in Ranchi
A charming imposing temple of Lord Shankara, another name for Lord Shiva, Pahari Mandir is located on the top of a huge Ranchi hill of altitude 2140 feet from sea level. Ranch hill was known earlier as Phansi Tongri and it is the place where freedom fighters were hanged to death. To remember the importance of this hill in the freedom movement, tricolor flag is unfurled on the Independence Days and Republic days.

The surroundings are picturesque and to reach the temple at the top of the mountain requires tapping up of more than 300 steps. Many devotees visit this place to make their wishes and also make the opportunity to thank Lord Shiva for the blessings. A bird’s view of the whole Ranchi city is possible from the temple premises and the view is really an enchanting eye pleasing experience. The trees of different species add to the beauty of the hill especially during the rainy season. During Shravan time, the devotees offer Jal (Dhara) to temple deity and the Shravan season is a major draw of visitors.

  • You can visit it but that one does not have. Very good views from a hill. 400 levels high. As tourists, we pull the shoes out wash the feet and go. Many of the locals is that doesn't matter. For investors has come down terribly. Sad for a religious site.

  • Try visiting on non specific days or religious days and weeks, else might have to face a lot of crowd and chaos . Especially during "Saavan". 453 stairs to the top... Nice scenic view. No toilets along the way. No fraud pandas and sellers .... Cheap and easily accessible.
  • This is one of the best and popular tourist attractions in Ranchi. It is located at a great 2392 ft. The views from the top is mesmerizing. You can see almost every part of Ranchi from here. India's highest flag post is on the top. Atmosphere is very spiritual. This place is under construction right now.
