About Dumka :
It is a Santal majority district of Jharkhand which is in the lap of the world's oldest hill range, Rajmahal's hill. The native inhabitants are the Paharias, the primitive Adivasi community. It was the center of the first organized Indian Adivasi war, Santal Hul, in 1855. In the Mughal period this district was recognized as the capital of Jharkhand and now it is the sub-capital of the state. There is a availability of millions years old fossils in Massanjore which have been destroyed due to Dam construction and Stone mining. Rev. P.O Boding lived in Benagaria Mission and did a outstanding work on the life, literature and culture of Santals. And Maluti, on the Rampur Haat route, is the only village in India that has more than 100 temples which is a world heritage site and is of historic importance to understand the craftship, architecture and emergence of Hindu religion.
