‘Tanginath Dham developing into tourist attraction’

Tuesday, 13 August 2019 | PNS | Ranchi

Rajya Sabha MP Mahesh Poddar on Monday said that Tanginath Dham in Gumla’s Dumri block welcomed several devotees from across the State during the holy month of Shravan and will soon develop into a major attraction for devotees and tourists from across the globe. Several ministers from Jharkhand and the MP himself have been working for spreading awareness about the beauty and uniqueness of the shrine, he said in a press communiqué released on Monday.

Like Tanginath Dham there are several other shrines and destinations that can emerge as major tourist attractions if the State focuses on spreading awareness about them, he added. “Every year devotees in at least 30 buses throng the shrine. Around 150 devotees from Ranchi too visit the shrine annually,” he said.

The Government, he said, is working on developing infrastructure at the temple. Construction of waiting rooms, electrification of the temple premises, construction of railings and more will be done soon, he added. The temple oozes old-world charm and is among one of the lesser explored tourist destinations in Jharkhand. Here all the rituals are performed by tribal priests at the temple built atop a hill. A waterfall in the vicinity of the temple adds up to the scenic beauty, said Poddar.

Poddar on Monday thanked Chief Minister Raghubar Das for prioritizing the development of the temple. He also thanked Jharkhand’s Assembly Speaker Dinesh Oraon, Legislator Shiv Shankar Oraon and Rajya Sabha MP Samir Oraon for actively supporting the development works at the shrine.

Around 100 Kilometers west of capital Ranchi, the shrine is also fast growing into a preferred destination for devotees due to the picturesque mountains and greens on either sides of the road that connects Ranchi to Gumla, he said.
