History of KodermaUnfortunately there is not a single recorded document about history of this place. Although certain historical inferences can be made by referring to history of Jharkhand state, but there isn’t any specific reference to or mention of Koderma. Therefore all that is left of Koderma’s history is its modern history, which can be said to have begun in year 1994, when it was eventually bifurcated from Hazaribagh District. An important point to note here is that both Koderma and Hazaribagh Districts were actually part of Bihar state till year 2000. Both these districts separated from Bihar and formally became part of newly formed Jharkhand state only in year 2000. And today, as we all know, Koderma District is one of the 24 districts of Jharkhand.

Culture of KodermaJust like all other districts of Jharkhand, even Koderma has a tribal belt and therefore it also has strong tribal culture. Their unique way of living that is still deeply steeped in century old rituals and customs stands in deep contrast with modern ethos and way of life. And purely because of this today tribal culture is not just cultural USP of Koderma alone but of entire Jharkhand District.
