Culture a life Style
of the District.:
As the name of the district "Giridih" itself reflects it is the
place of Mountains. The district beautifully covered with the small
mountaineers has the mixed culture of the different religious and castes.
The Hindus, the Muslim, Christians and the Jains are the popular
inhabitants of Giridih. At these sects depend on agriculture as it is their
chief occupation and only source of living.
The Giridih district has an ample population of tribal like Santhal, Munda
and Kols. Their source of living is agriculture and most of them are
farmers. They follow both Hindu and Christian belief. They are free from
all the modern problems and wear simple dress. On the other hand most of
the Hindus and the Muslims sections are following the mixture culture of
older and modern age. The famous Parasnath temple is situated in this
district a religious pious and sacred place of the Jainism. The original
Jainism with little modern change can be seen in this district.
Basically a poor district, Giridih is improving its political awareness,
literacy and other social development to improve its living standards. Most

less development and the emerging militancy.

Vedic and popular custom, while the Muslims have their orthodox and modern
style of custom. The main occupation of this area is cultivation but

marginal differences can be seen in the dress and design of the people of
the village and the city. Most of the villagers used to wear the
traditional doti, kurta and lungi, while the ity inhabitants used to wear
fashionable modern dress. It effects the thinking of the people, too. On
the other hand, Jaians have their own style of dress according to their
religion that is basically found in the Jain Temple. They don't wear
any dress, the people living the society of its section don't have such
effect on their dress; they live like the other people wear the fashionable
