Pahari Mandir, Ranchi

4.4
#2 of 8 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.

  • Beat place to sit quietly in the gushing winds and just to feel yourself in the house of the god...... divine pleasure.... must place to visit once in a while .... and the view from the top is amazing.... don't stop while climbing 😜👍👍
  • It's a great place first is the view which is simply awesome you can see the whole city from here and the viewing area is barred by metal rods so it's perfectly safe . The puja here is really great if you are a spiritual person you will definitely love this place . One problem for old and disabled people that you have to climb many stairs to reach the main temple at the top of the mountain and currently there is no lifts here but it's under construction. But you can enjoy the temples below the Mountain. It's a great place to visit for your next vacation.
  • Very good temple of Lord shiva. Total 400 hundreds stairs to the top approximately. Some new construction is being made and on going also. Through top you can see some good sight.
  • Really nice place for worship. Gives a nice fresh feeling in early morning.Cool breeze passes through the top.
  • Nice place to come.... feel fresh after going there and nice view from tha top of temple city look damn good....

Where to stay in Ranchi

For a city with relatively little tourist appeal, Ranchi offers a surprising selection of accommodations. The majority of these come in the form of small hotels and guesthouses close to the train station. Unfortunately, many budget-friendly options offer only basic amenities and maintain questionable standards of hygiene. For something more comfortable, consider the options along the northern section of Main Road, where you can find larger modern hotels, including global chain brands.
