The tradition that Bheema, one of the five Pandava brothers from the epic Mahabharata, constructed a dam (bandh) here gave rise to the town's name. It is located above the Kharagpur Hills and is home to several creatures in idyllic settings, including wild boar, panthers, van murgi, nilgais, tigers, chitals, and sambhar. The grassland biome and the woodland biome are also present. The migratory season brings a lot of birds to this area.
