The change in name was attributed to the much less famous older brother of the celebrated bard, Jyotindranath Tagore, who procured the land from its owner and chose to continue his life in seclusion, visibly upset and depressed after the untimely and unexpected suicide of his young wife. It is here that he constructed two architectural structures after procuring the hillock, Bramha Sthal and Shanti Dham, the latter being used for his residential purposes. The Tagore Hill still exists as a popular tourist destination of Ranchi and people in numbers flock to the 300 feet hill to enjoy the calmness, serene beauty and peaceful atmosphere in the surroundings along with a nice overlooking view of Ranchi city. A Ramakrishna Mission, a center of spiritual retreat is situated at the foothills of Tagore Hill and enhances its stature as a spiritually recreational spot. The destination is equally popular among adventure lovers and thrill seekers pursuing adventure sports and activities like rock climbing.
Tagore Hill can be visiting during the 10:00 AM to 06:00 PM
