Steel city of India
An industrial city developed around a steel plant, yet surprisingly blessed by nature. The Jamshedpur city might seem like a dry and exploited piece of land if you are to know about the industrial development that the place has undergone. But this landscape has survived and transformed into something unthinkable over the years. the artificial Lakes built as a reservoir to supply water to the industries has become an aquatic ecosystem, parks and gardens developed along with the settlements and have enriched the natural setting and greenery of the city. This place was blessed by the presence of the Dalma mountain ranges augmenting its beauty even more. The abundance of flora and fauna here are conserved by the means of sanctuaries and wildlife reservoirs, opening yet another tourism opportunity.
