An Educational trip was organized to Jaipur in order to make the children aware about their rich diversity and heritage. The trip aimed at providing a break to students amid their hectic schedule. The excursion began with visiting the cultural “CHOKIDHANI“which made students realize the true essence of Rajasthan. It was amazing to see the enthusiasm with which students took part in various activities including archery and magic shows.
The next day students witnessed the making of the natural handmade paper in the paper factory. What enthralled the students were the methods used to print various designs on the paper. Many bought some handmade sheets as souvenirs of the trip.
Our next destination was the royal Amber Fort ,situated in the heart of the city. Its massive size enthralled everyone. The fort was a typical example of the royal essence of Rajasthani culture. The use of labor and science was well reflected through the constructions of “SHEESH MAHAL” and the zenana.Amber Fort is mainly known for its artistic Hindu style elements.
City Palace was the next view, which depicted a true court with the king and his courtiers. Moreover it also reflected the history of the kings that ruled Jaipur. We later visited the “Johri Bazaar” where many bought gifts for their family members.
The next day we went to the museum where we learnt many interesting and jaw dropping facts abot the pink city. One interesting fact we were told was that Jaipur was divided into 3 regions-the old city, the pink city and the new city. I was spellbound to see the tools and various other things and their applications which were used during the medieval times. All of us were excited to see the clothes of the queen with approximately 9kg of gold embedded in it, which was on show.
The trip not only provided the students with the much needed break but also made them experience the true essence of the Royal City. The trip ended on a high note leaving a memorable image on everyone’s minds and souls and providing us all with a great time!
