Southern Triangle Tour :: Day 2 :: Grade IV & V :: 22nd March 2018

Educational Tour

The second day of the tour was more exciting than the first one since the first one went off fast because of the travelling.
At 8am in the morning, the students had their breakfast and left for sight seeing to Chamundi Hills in Mysore.  Atop of the hill, they saw the famous Sri Chamundeswari Temple. ‘Chamundi’ or ‘Durga’ is the fierce form of ‘Shakti’. She is the slayer of demons, ‘Chanda’ and ‘Munda’ and also ‘Mahishasura’, the buffalow-headed monster.

From there, they went to the historial palace called the Ambavilas Palace also known as the Mysore Palace.  It is the official residence of the Wadiyur Dynasty and the seat of the Kingdom of Mysore.  The palace is in the centre of Mysore, and faces the Chamundi Hills eastward. They also visited the Mysore Church called the St. Philomena’s Cathedral which was built in 1936 using a Neo Gothic Style and its architechture being inspired by Cologne Cathedral in Germany.
The children then had their lunch at the hotel and moved towards the famous Brindavan Gardens. After that the kids had a fun time playing Kho Kho.
They retired for the day after having their dinner at 9pm.
