Trip To The Historic City of Agra
School trips are an experiential way of providing hands on learning and nurturing life skills in our young learners. It helps students to develop qualities of resourcefulness, self-confidence, a cooperative attitude and leadership qualities. K.R. Mangalam World School, Faridabad organized an educational trip to Agra for the students of Class IV TO VIII. Students started their journey and headed to one of the jewels of India’s Mughal empire – ‘Fatehpur Sikri’(the city of victory), which was the capital of the Mughals for 10 years. Once there, the group walked around the inner citadel, following the guide. There students saw some famous monuments inside including the Panch Mahal, Buland Darwaza and the Salim Chishti Dargha. On Day 2 students visited the home of the UNESCO World Heritage site –“The Taj Mahal” . On arrival they caught mesmerizing glimpses of the incredible 17th century building. They walked through the domed gateway, and marvelled at the exquisite white marbled monument commissioned by the Emperor Shah Jahan in 1632 as a mausoleum for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. This majestic tomb looked mirage-like from a distance. It was indeed a memorable experience for the students.
