As an extended learning of the curriculum, the students of Grade VII were taken to Venkataramana Temple, Vasanthapura, Bengaluru by our social teachers. The purpose of the visit was to explore and experience the incredible heritage of our country. The thousand year old Venkataramana temple, having the shrine of Lord Srinivasa, Balaji, Vishnu was built by the Cholas and is one of the ancient temples located on a small hillock in Vasantpura in Bengaluru south. The tall gopuram with sculptures of idols, beautiful carvings of marriage of Shiva and Parvati and of Hindu deities and incidents from Puranas, in the open hall is a master piece of Dravidian style of architecture. Facilitators escorted the children around the gallery explaining and answering the queries of the students. Our students came back and shared their experiences in the temple with others.
