A popular tourist stopover in the city, Ranchi Hill, at a height of 2,140 ft, offers panoramic views of the city. The main attraction is an age-old temple, which is locally known as Pahari Mandir. Devotees reach the temple of 'Pahari Baba' or Lord Shiva, who is worshipped here in the form of a lingam, after walking up a flight of 468 steps. Tourists can also visit the picturesque Ranchi Lake that lies at the base of the hills. Built in 1842 by a British national named Colonel Onsely, the lake is the tourist centre of the city. Tourists can explore its surrounding beauty through boating in the pristine waters. Tourists can picnic along the banks and soak in the peace and serenity.
