Most Visited Tourists Spots in Jhargram

The Jhargram Royal Palace is built around a rectangular courtyard. The lineage of Jhargram Raj Family was initiated by Shri Sarveshwar Singhji who was Military General of Raja Man Singh I of Amer. Sarveshwar Singhji assisted Man Singh in defeating the local Mal Chieftains and assumed power over the region. Sarveshwar Singhji hailed from Chauhan clan of Rajputs. After the victory, Raja Man Singh I of Amer, granted mansabdari of the entire region of Jungle Mahal to his victorious general. Sarveshwar Singhji named his capital as Jhargram. Literally this meant a village surrounded by deep forests. The palace has a sprawling structure with architectural style of Rajasthan. The Jhargram palace has been turned into a hotel, where you can stay during your tour to Jhargram. The rooms are decorated keeping the original design intact.
During sightseeing at Jhargram and around, the usual first destination is Kanak Durga temple at Chilkigarh which is about 15 km west from the palace. A typical Jhargram sightseeing tour starts from this place as tourists walk down through a narrow path snaking through dense overgrowth that leads to the main temple premises. There is a paid parking facility at the entrance of the narrow path. There are two structures inside the premises standing side by side. One is the new temple with a towering pinnacle which houses the Kanak Durga idol made of AshtaDhatu. Local Samata kings started the worship of this idol after getting the idol designed and eventually getting it made by artist Jogendranath Kamiliya. The other is the decaying original Kanak Durga temple. Originally it had five pinnacles of which only three remain at present. The temples are situated in a forest-like area near the bank of local dulung river, which is enjoyable for walking. From parking lot to temple, the 300 meter journey through dense overgrowth, one can see varieties of medicinal plants and giant trees which are nicely labeled for understanding. At some locations there are deep forests on both sides. There are many medicinal plants in this forest-like area.
From Kanakadurga temple, the Chilkigarh Raj Palace premises are located at a distance of just 1 km. A favorite location among tourists visiting Jhargram, Chilkigarh Raj Palace was constructed by Samanta King Gopinath Singh about 300 years back. King Gopinath Singh’s only child was his daughter Subarna Subarnamani. She was later married to Jagannath Deo Dhabaldev, king of neighboring Dhalbhumgarh. After the death of Raja Gopinath Singh in 1765, Jagannath Singh became the king of Chilkigarh. During the historic Chuar Rebellion, Raja Jagannath Singh declared the Dhal Rebellion from this Chilkigarh Palace in 1769. Sadly, the East India Company succeeded in suppressing this revolt with a strong hand. Interested persons taking a weekend outing at Jhargram, look around the grounds around the palace which houses three temples apart from the Rajbari Palace. One is a look alike of New Kanak Durga temple and the other is a five pinnacled structure while the third is in a ruinous state. These temples are rather new structures.
Jhargram town also houses a mini zoo, which houses various species of deer as well as snakes, bears, crocodiles and black rabbits. This park is built over a total of 21.54 hectares. The park is a favourite among children enjoying weekend tours to Jhargram with their parents.
