    Arnab,a part of the jhargram rajbari is used by WBTDC to run a resort(called MALLADEB---NAMED AFTER THE DYNASTY).
    But the position of most of the rooms donot have a good position so that you can open the window(keeping your privacy intact).The rooms in the main building have this problem.The guesthouse building(infront of which my car is parked) where I stayed is somehow better.

    Roomrent--950/-
    Facility--Attach bath,AC,GEYSER,
    Price of food is reasonable.I ordered only bengali food & quality(pure barir ranna)was to my liking.
    BUT,there is a gross lack of professionalism among the staffs and it is not maintained in the way it should have been.

    Some other good option in jhargram are 1) ARANYASUNDARI GUEST HOUSE & 2)DULUNG GUEST HOUSE

    MPS resort is a costly option and its a big resort a few kms away from jhargram on the way to DAHIJURI.


    Local sightseeing of JHARGRAM includes
    1)deer park(a mini zoo mantained by forest dept.)
    2)kechanda bandh(a 100 acre tank not in a very good condition due to poor maint.)
    3)kanandurga temple beside the DULUNG river at CHILKIGARH.
    4)two farms(pvt property) with good collection of rose.

    You can cover JHILIMILI,SUTAN and other places if u donot want to go to MUKUTMANIPUR.
    Else take JAHRGRAM--DAHIJURI--SILDA--BELPAHARI--BANSPAHARI--RANIBANDH--JHILIMILI--MUKUTMANIPUR route to cover the places enroute MUKUTMANIPUR.

    JHILIMILI has a lodging option called RIMIL PARYATAK NIBAS.
    Mukutmanipur has many lodging options and PEERLESS INN is the best/costliest(2400/-onward,food is costly,facility is veery good) among them.I stayed at PEERLESS INN.
