Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das recently inaugurated the Rs 55 crore Haj House in Ranchi, on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr. The five-storeyed Haj House is constructed according to Mughal architecture. Around 1,000 people can offer prayers. A total of 150 men and 80 women can stay at a time. It is centrally air-conditioned. The earlier Haj House was constructed at the same place at a cost of Rs. 5.50 crore. Despite repair work, the building could not sustain for long and it was demolished.
