Places to visit

  • Tanginath: A number of architectural structures can be found in Tanginath that date from the prehistoric to the medieval periods. It is not concealed, but the Indian Archaeological Society appears to be ignoring it. It is a significant location with archeological significance and needs to be the focus of study. It is referred to as Shivashali and is well-known for its excellent rustproof iron trishool. Tanginath is located in the Gumla District's Dumri Block. The distance between Dumri and Gumla's administrative center is 8 kilometers, or roughly 50 kilometers. Dumri is accessible, but the route after that is difficult. Tanginath is perched atop a 300-foot-high hill.

  • Harinath: Gajghat Ray, the 22nd monarch of the Naga dynasty and the son of Raja Mohan Ray, built the Mahamaya temple, which serves as the symbol of this community.

Raja Shivdas Karn erected a statue of Lord Vishnu in the year 1391 AD. When Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (1445–1535 AD) traveled from Jagannathpuri to Mathura in around 1485 AD, he chose this route. The original temple was demolished by certain tribal people during an uncontrolled kohl uprising against the diku, according to the Ranchi Gazetteer. Virumu Ram's songs attest to this.
