Historical Significance of Ghatsila
Birsa Munda, a brave freedom fighter who rose against the British regime, lived in these fertile lands once. The Santhali and the Kurmali culture have merged with the current modernisation wave that swept the lands in recent times.
The Anglo-Indian community that had once thrived in the neighbourhoods brought the first sweep of modernisation to these villages where white elephants and the Macaw were a common sight once upon a time. You can still find those old-fashioned British houses and churches in the locality.
The Dhar of the Malwa Rajputana tribes conquered Ghatsila a few hundred years before the British.
Raja Jagadish Chandra Deo Dhabal Deb of Jamboni Zamindari & Dhalbhum was the area’s last recognised ruler. His sons still have a massive influence on these lands.
Its sheer beauty can quieten you. Its glory can often overpower you. The peaceful and calm, laid back world within the place can inspire you to live life as it comes through every day.
