Ranchi Heritage and History is a technology-enabled documentation project of the urban social technology firm, Mapunity, focused on the local history of the city. It combines information on different aspects of the heritage of cities - the built form, a chronology, cultural distinction, and more - to make it easier to know and celebrate the heritage of the city and the region around it.
Mapunity's HH platform is also available for the following cities.
At the base of the gigantic Ranchi hill at an altitude of 2140 feet, the British national Colonel Onsely excavated and formed the Ranchi lake in 1842. The calm and neat lake serves as a perching place for many aquatic birds.
