After visiting the famous Tagore hill in Ranchi I wanted to wish a place with natural beauty. The Tagore hill is a cultural heritage for the city as it holds memorabilia of the famed poet and writer Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. He spent a couple of years of his life at the Shantidham that is built at the top of the Tagore hill. The location of this attraction is mesmerising as it is surrounded with plush greenery and serene environs. Now the next place that I visited in Ranchi was the Dassam falls.
