Went to Hazaribagh had since returned day before yesterday. While leaving the town on my way back had made preparation to spend some time at the forest. The road (NH-33) through the jungle was so good that I felt inspired. However, to my surprise, even at 11 O'clock in the morning I could see that the gate was closed. On the opposite side there were few buildings but there was not much of an activity there. Not even was there any board displaying the timings. Hence decided to leave.

Hey rahul4640, What did you see in Hazaribagh. Where did you stay? How is the road? Write something, even a short report would help others. It seems you dropped your plan for Odihsa and instead spent the puja in Hazaribagh. Please share your experience and help me plan my trip.

By the way, thanks to mmonami for such a nice and detailed trip report. Reading the report was indeed thrilling. Thank you very much for sharing.

Thanks for asking, Debdasd. Actually I went there for just a few days. And I had gone there mainly to see two things, among which I could not see the first thing due to a very bad road condition. Please read this, where I have already informed this forum about my frustration.
But my second desire was fulfilled and I could see some prehistoric ancient monoliths nearby, at a place called Pukri-Barwadih. Please see one picture, which explains much, in case anyone is not familiar with these monoliths.

The road is good throughout, both NH-2 and NH-33. Please see few photos.

There are several hotels too choose from, depending on your budget. I stayed at Hotel Cannary Inn, which is a good hotel, yet is slightly on the expensive side. But they are several equally good hotels too, at a cheaper rate. I suggest that you stay at Hotel Prince. It is one of the oldest hotel in the town, is also centrally located, has adequate space for a secured car parking. The rooms are spacious and are reasonably priced.

Yes, you are correct. I could not get at least seven days leave from my job for a Puri-Satpada-Rambha/Barkul-Daringbadi-Bhubaneswar trip. Also to be honest, finance was a constraint too.

Thanks Rahul. I shall try my luck with Hotel Prince then. I didn't know about the Megalithic site at Hazaribagh. I had been to Stonehenge and this must be a smaller version of that. I am more interested in the cave paintings you mentioned in the other thread.

One thing for sure, the more I read about Hazaribagh the more I discover.

Dear Debdasd, as I feel that your interest to know more about these megaliths is genuine, I guess reading this link will be useful for you.

You are most welcome to visit them, at your convenience and leisure. I have already mentioned the useful telephone numbers in that link. Just make sure that you rent a car from Hazaribagh.

I guess so. And the road is good and inviting too.
