Purulia West Bengal tourism

We searched for a lot of hotels in a short time and we found Niharika and Malabika Lodge in West Bengal tourism. Both lodges are in a very good location in Ayodhya hill and those hotels are the main point for Ayodhya Pahar travel guide.

Ayodhya Pahar hotel booking

After booking the hotel in Malabika which is cheaper rate than Niharika. The hotel is neat and clean and the room size was standard. The place is pleasant and safe because of a military base camp just beside the hotel (read – low budget tourist places in india ). we started our journey from Sonarpur at 4:00 am, Reach Ballygunge station from where we booked an Uber car for Santragachi station. At 6:25 am the train started whistled.

Around 12:30 pm we four people with my child reached Purulia station. After that, we took a toto to the bus stand and we hire an “ambassador car” for Ayodhya hills Purulia. Taking an ambassador car is cost-effective because it’s running on diesel so the rate is also low. The car can be booked from station also but it’s very less and they are waiting for train only. From the bus stand, there are few buses also going to Ayodhya hilltop with 35 rupees, but it’s few and it’s a time taking matter. We reached Malabika hotel around 3:15 pm and finished our lunch between the journey.

We reach Ayodhya hilltop via Sirkabad road. Purulia railway station to Ayodhya Pahar  the journey was approx 40 km. At the evening we booked a car for next day Purulia sightseen. We met local people, they are very humble and hardworking. Around 8:00 pm we came back to the hotel, finish dinner.

Ayodhya hill tourism

Next day we decide to hang out the place near me. We visit “sita kund” also called “Burburidham” in the morning. Its 1 km walking distance from our hotel. The legend here is that during the year of exile Sree Ramchandra had come to Ayodhya hill with Sita Devi on the way to Dandak. In order to quench the thirst of Sita Devi, Sree Ram perched an arrow through the earth and extracted water, in course of time it became a well. “Disum Sendra” which is the hunting festival of Purulia tribals, they drink the holy water first from the sita kund and then started hunting.

In the evening we went to Kalipahar which is another hill beside Ayodhya. It is far higher than Ayodhya hill. The view is also good but accommodation is very less over there, after spending few time there we went to the market and buy some snacks and return to the hotel.

Next day for Purulia sightseeing we out from the ayodhya hill. We finished our lunch and went to the Purulia tourist spot, around 10 o’clock by a car which we already booked and went for the Purulia sightseeing.

Marble lake Purulia

Our first tourist spot is marble lake. It is the main tourist attraction in purulia. At the time of going to Marble Lake, I noticed that the road conditions were very bad so it’s good to hire a big carbut I feel adventures in travel, the marble lake area is very beautiful. The lake is situated in the middle of the several hills. The lake was created due to the cutting of stones at the time of the construction of the upper dam and lower dam. This lake has been created due to the water coming out of the soil to cut mountains. The watercolour of the lake is black. We climb a little to the mountains very carefully. From there, the lake was excellent.

Bamni falls

Then we visited the Bamni falls. This place is also very classy for the nature lover. the entire waterfalls only are seen from the bottom of the lake. The stairs are very long and rough to get down. So reserve some time whenever visited Bamni falls. the waterfall seen a little when getting down minimum 250 stares, it is not recommended for senior citizens. I could go down to roughly 500 steps in approx 800 steps. Bellow the Bamni falls a lake has flowed from this waterfall. The lake surrounded by hills and its look great. I must suggest for go to tours in purulia everyone.

Turga Dam

From here we go for Turag Falls. A far away Turag dam is there. These falls are seen from above the mountain. We saw the turga dam only.

Khairabera dam Purulia

Another attraction is Khairabera dam in Purulia. The dam is on Khaira river. It is also one of the attractions of Purulia. the blue water of the Khairabera lake, and the dam surrounded by hills of Ayodhya and shaded by trees, and it’s really fantastic.

Charida village Purulia

After Khairabera dam, we went for Purulia chhau mask making village. It is also called the village of masks. The mask of the Chow dance is made here. There are various kinds of masks in this village. it is an almost a pilgrim centre for making masks of chow dance. One can see masks in the making stage and can buy them.The famous artist Padmashree Gambhir Shing is also at Charida.

Lahoria Shiva Temple Purulia

After that, we went to the temple called Lahoria. Lahoria Shiva Temple is right next to the Lower Dam. The temple is very ancient and historical values. one day before the “Chaitra Sankranti”(a Hindu festival) a two day’s fair-Laharia Baba’s Gajan Mela takes place km away from Ayodhya crossing in order to gratify enraged earth.It is also a popular Purulia tourist spot.

Purulia pumped storage hydroelectric power plant

After visited the temple, we went to view the Lower Dam and upper dam. The water flowed from the upper dam to lower dam and create hydroelectricity .A huge hydroelectricity plant is also there and it is a main Purulia power plant and it’s a important purulia pump storage project.

Mayur pahar purulia

While returning we attend Mayur Pahar. The resonant sounds of the wind whistling through the pine, sal and silk cotton trees, the resonance of beating madal floating from afar and beauty of the moonlit night really enchant lovers of nature. We stay a little while sunset. The romance of the dim light is very bright in my memory till now.


Murguma dam purulia

We decide at the time of return we stop over to Murguma and Deulghata. So we have done the breakfast earlier and got out for Murguma. purulia to murguma 45 km from Purulia by car and it’s a one and half hour journey. We came across different tribal villages and hills, and we reached Murguma. Murguma lake surrounded on three hills. On the one hand, the water is surrounded by a dam. We walked a long way through the road on the dam. The chirping of bird makes this hilly forest charming. Intoxication smell of Mahua draws wild elephants from the forest. A dam has been constructed of Murguma river and a water reservoir also has been developed. Murguma was looking like a photo from a distance. Palash Bitan Eco Resort or Bon Polashi Eco Hut is a good choice for murguma hotels. Both are near the dam.

After spending one hour in Murguma, then we went towards Deulghata.

From Murguma to Deulghata 15 km, takes half an hour and Purulia to Deulghata 27 km. Deulghata Temple is situated on the bank of Kanshvati River. In the past, for the purpose of promoting Jainism, this temple complex was erected in the temple premises. However, most temples have been destroyed.

Now there are only two temples, and the terracotta work still exists in the temple. The idols here are found, all of them are ancient. And the idols made of Black basalt stone. And the fair is held here during the winter. However, the temples and the idols need to be preservation.

On returning, I saw the sunset from the train, and it got upset, and thus my Ayodhya hills Purulia tour was finished.

Pakhi Pahar is the main attraction of Matha, carved out of a 1000 ft high hill about 1 km away from Bhuchungdi crossing which is 3 km away from Matha on the way to Barabhum. The entire hill seems to be flying with spreaded wings. Different species of birds have their nests here. A group of sculptors are carving the hill in order to discover something new.

This project “Flight to Harmony ” was initiated by the individual effort of Kolkata artist Chitta Dey 1992. This could be a joint tour with Ayodhya hills Purulia.

Cheap shopping place in Purulia

Charida village is the main and prime attraction of shopping. We bought 4 masks from there. Souvenir starts from Rs 15 only and all are the special handmade products in India.

    Demography wise the places looked more likely Biharinath/Baranti area. BTW, I liked the Marble Lake area in your description; this is something little apart than the usual village, lake, small-hills etc. The gov. lodge – can it be done through online, or you required to visit somewhere locally?

    Very informative though!

    Very useful TR – specially the break-up of rates that you have given. Plz let me know if you stayed at Murguma, esp. at the Palash Bitan or Bon Polashi. I plan to travel there in March and any feedback would be appreciated. Thx.

    • This is my second time in purulia. I stayed in murguma at Palash bitan.Tent is also available for 500 rs. For a single family the place is quite lonly. So I recommend stay with atleast 2 family or going with friends its ok. March is very hot over there so tent is not a good option. Sunset and sunrise from murguma is very classy. Koushik sinha palash bitan +919674222670.once you come back please let me know your experience.
