He built a house there and named it Shanti Dham. This was the history of Tagore hill. Jyotindranath did the Bengali translation of Bal Gangadhar Tilak's Marathi Srimad Bhagwad Gita Rahasya.

However all this phases of neglect is now over as Tagore hill is fast emerging as the one of the most visited picnic places in Ranchi.
