Message for Tourists

Jhargram is the Sub-Divisional town of Jhargram Sub-Division situated in the western part of Paschim Medinipur District of West Bengal. Beyond the Gangetic plains of Bengal, Jhargram offers the most exotic beauties of undulating topography culminating in hill ranges of Belpahari, Kankrajhor in the North to the serene beauties of meandering Subarnarekha river in the South. Jhargram is the paradise of nature lovers with bountiful forests of sal, mahul, wild elephants, deer and birds. The ancient temples, royal palaces, folk tunes and rhythms of tribal make it all the more attractive destination of tourists who love to discover the unknown and unaffected beauties of nature. I like to appeal to all nature loving tourists to come to Jhargram - smell it, feel it and inspire others to visit it.

Sub-Divisional Officer, Jhargram

We are grateful
