Simultala

If you want to spend some time close to nature, Simultala can be one of the best choices. You will find the place in colours if you visit it during spring, which is the flowering season. Enjoying walks down the dusty roads on a lonely winter afternoon can also be enjoyable. It can also be the best place if you want to stare at a sky full of stars away from the pollution of the cities and towns. There's a lot of greenery and the view of the hills and mountains in the horizon will add pleasure to your eyes.

In Bihar’s Jamui district there is Jhajha block where in lies a small kasba by the name of Simultala with an area of a few hundred sq. kms and a population of about 10000. Lying in nature’s lap is Simultala surrounded by the scenic beauty of the surrounding mountains. Adding to the beauty of this setting is a stream that flows by. Away from the din of the cities, is this small pollution free heavenly location where many Zamindars from Bengal had bought huge pieces of land and built bungalows. They used to visit these bungalows during favorable climate or to recuperate. Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, Sharadchandra and many such eminent writers of those times have enjoyed the nature’s bounty at Simultala. A legend of his times, the owner of the film company “New Theaters”, Calcutta, Shri B.N. Sarkar’s bungalow at Simultala is a living testimony of its glorious past.
