Jamalpur Map

Jamalpur  on the district map of Bihar

Jamalpur in Bihar’s Monghyr Disrict has one of the most remarkable Railway Workshops in the World, and the largest in India. Not even the US of A can surpass India’s mammoth railway network, the busiest in the world.

Jamalpur is a city and a municipality in Munger district in the Indian state of Bihar.

Jamalpur is best known as a very large workshop on the East Indian Railway, employing over 30,000 people at one time. The town was established during the British Raj and the cultural hub at that time was the Railway Institute. The Railway Institute was huge – it had its own movie theatre, a six-lane swimming pool, eight tennis courts, four billiard rooms and a bowling lawn. Its dances were renowned and railway folk came from all over the East India Railway (EIR) to attend.

Waterfall

Jamalpur Waterfall

The waterfall is not a regular feature during the rainy season and usually a deer species known as neelgai in the local dialect is found near the same.The waterfall is approachable from the water works which supplies the railway colony.This waterfall is on a decline and the natural beauty is slowly tarnished as a result of unbriddled blasting at the stone quarries and also due to widespread deforestation for firewood.

 

Jamalpur Hills

For all that, however, Jamalpur (Jamal ..in urdu means beautiful) is an incredibly beautiful place – hills, lakes, water falls -all add to it’s picturesque beauty.

Famous throughout India is the ‘Sholay tunnel’ , a tunnel where , you guessed it, a scene in the megabuster SHOLAY was shot . Immortal also are actor Sanjeev Kumar’s words- “jab main Jamalpur main inspector tha…”.
