Heritage visit to Mamallapuram by the VII standard students

On Saturday the 23rd August 2014, a  heritage tour to Mamallapuram was arranged by the Principal. Class VII students were accompanied by the social teacher, Mrs. Shaistha. 

Report by Ms Shaistha Begam, social studies teacher of VII standard:

"We started from the school premises at around 9:50 a.m. We got the PTC bus by 10:45 a.m. and reached Mamallapuram at around 11:20 a. m. 

The first place we visited was the Five Rathas. The students observed the rock cut temples and collected the information about them. We took photos.  They were very happy and excited. Most of them had visited the place for the first time. 

After that we made a visit to the other monuments and cave temples. After having lunch, we visited the “Butter Ball” one of the famous rocks standing without any support. Students were very joyous and enthusiastic to go there. They had a nice time climbing on the rocks.

Next at the light house, there is a museum which displays the equipment used in the light house and also models of ships built in various countries of the world. It also has a display of the Barometer and a big light house lamp. Many new routes including the “silk route” were seen on the route maps displayed in the museum. It was really a great experience for both me and the children."
