Giridih

Giridih is third most populous district of Jharkhand State according to 2011 Indian census. History of Giridih District is a part of the history of its parent district, Hazaribagh as well as also of the Chota Nagpur Plateau. The entire territory of Chhota Nagpur, known as Jharkhand was believed to be covered with inaccessible hills and forests. Giridih district was created on 6th December 1972 by carving some parts of Hazaribagh district and in 1999 some parts of Giridih district was carved out to from Bokaro District. This district is currently part of Red Corridor. Giridih District is geographically divided into two natural divisions, which are the central plateau and lower plateau. Though this region was in touch with many parts of India, yet the non-Aryan tribes who resided here had no king. The inhabitant of Chota Nagpur decided to elect a king due to regular foreign invaders and Mundas became the king of the state. Khortha, a blend of Magahi and Bengali, is the main language spoken in Giridih district. The tribal people speak Santhali. The district has rich forest resources and has several jungles of sal trees and bamboos, and a variety of other indigenous trees. Among other common trees are bamboo, semal, Mahua, palash, kusum, kend, Asian pear and bhelwa. Parasnath hills have a number of plants having medicinal use.
