Welcome to Jamalpur City

DISCOVER JAMALPUR

Jamalpur in Bihar’s Monghyr Disrict has one of the most remarkable Railway Workshops in the World, and the largest in India. Not even the US of A can surpass India’s mammoth railway network, the busiest in the world.

Jamalpur is a city and a municipality in Munger district in the Indian state of Bihar.

Jamalpur is best known as a very large workshop on the East Indian Railway, employing over 30,000 people at one time. The town was established during the British Raj and the cultural hub at that time was the Railway Institute. The Railway Institute was huge – it had its own movie theatre, a six-lane swimming pool, eight tennis courts, four billiard rooms and a bowling lawn. Its dances were renowned and railway folk came from all over the East India Railway (EIR) to attend.

Jamalpur Railway Colony(East Colony) is a Paradise as compared to the city on the West of the Railway station.My father MR.M.M.MEHTA joined as an apprentic mechanic(1943 batch) and served until 1980 as Production Engineer when he was transferred to Liluah.
Having studied at Notre Dame Academy during my childhood until 1965,I still miss the treks on the seven ranges of the Jamalpur hills,the trip to the Water Works,the football matches at the JSA,the morning runs around the race course and most important,the refreshing tea and samosas of HIRA LAL at Albert Road.

Jamalpur…really a beautiful small railway town with a proud history…..developed by the British & demolished by the Indians….In a very short span of my life of 27 years …I’ve seen JMP demolishing day by day….the no-maintenance town…I’ve to say a lot more but the space is less….I’ve only 2 dreams…the first one is to get my father’s 1969 model Lambretta scooter repaired..& the 2nd one is to Renovate my home town-Jamalpur to make as beautiful as it was during British -Emperor.

Hi,
This is Kumar Gaurav i stayed in jamalpur tlll 1998 and I have few of my best childhood memories from there. I still remember jairam tea stall near shai Mandir. I studied in kendriya vidyala 1996 batch. My dad was Allahabad bank employee jamalpur branch. I miss Durga puja in children’s park east colony. I used to visit mr vijay of ready made shyama store. I used to play cricket in tankie maidan in rampur colony.
