The visit to the rock garden was quite exhilarating and to gratify our craving mind, we headed to visit a place of natural scenic beauty, which sure grabbed our full attention and made us calm. Being young minds we were thrilled travelling to Jonha Falls Ranchi. We reached the place quickly and walked further because we were informed that many steps down the road, we could find a place that offered a clear view of the falls. I should admit that when nature at its best can make anyone spellbound. The place around was quite beautiful with peaks and a lot of greenery and the height of the waterfall seemed to be just little above 40 feet but still it was a treat to be at such a place.

Looking at the falls from the top to the ground was quite mesmerizing. The green forest was surrounding the falls on all the sides and the beautiful woods along with the falls made the place look exotic and distinctive. The water was refreshing but chilly and flowing with an unusual force. The sparkling waterfalls in the sun were looking stunning, beautiful and eye-catching. I took many snaps over there and even did video photographing to show them my family and other friends.
There were also some temporary food stalls and the food items looked tantalizing and tasty. Being an avid foodie I can easily and confidently say that the local food items were simply delicious and lip-smacking. The rocks having beautiful shapes and views after getting eroded by the flowing water were also another plus point to watch out. I was able to make new friends over there and once we started talking we shared our life history and we decided to remain in touch through various messengers and through our blogs. We, all along with our new friends, took a shower at the shallow end of the bed of the falls and it was altogether a great experience.
The time spent at the Jonha Falls Ranchi was amazingly great and we longed to sit there all day; however, we had to move because there were quite a few more places to visit.

After a soothing and spiritual visit to the Jagannath Temple, I, along with my friends, travelled further to visit the famous Rock Garden Ranchi. This garden is located at an easily accessible distance of 4 km from the city of Ranchi on the Road Kanke. It sports resemblance to the Rock Garden, which is in the city of Jaipur though this Rock Garden is built by using the rocks found on the Gonda Hill.

There is an entry fees for every visitor and that is Rs 20 per person. The low entry fee contributes in its endeavor to attract visitors from all sections of the society. Besides the locals, the place is also visited by national and international tourists. The most desirable time to visit is during the sunset as the setting sun lends a mesmerizing and romantic atmosphere. There were many facilities inside such as a bathroom, which is one of the most important things in any place.
The food stalls were also available providing many local as well as other preferable and well-liked delicious and tasty items. The lingering aroma besides the stall forced us to partake in the food items and I must say that they were very lip-smacking and enjoyable. We were also allowed to take our camera inside with which we could take many amazing pictures so that I could show them to my friends and family.
The garden was well maintained and a huge success amongst the children and family people as they could spend quality time here. The children loved the hanging bridge and were frolicking here and there. The slide was also a favorite option for them. In the late afternoon, we could see an amazing turnout of youngsters to see the romantic sunset. The surrounding lake gives it a picturesque quality and seeing this beautiful place gave me a nice and serene feeling inside.
The Rock Garden Ranchi has the distinction of being developed and constructed into a man-made and artificial garden and inside this garden are man-made waterfalls and sculptures, which are very beautiful to look at. My friends and I enjoyed this visit very much and by the end of the day were ready for Jonha Falls Ranchi.
