On Wednesday the 31st of May, students from grade seven OnCampus went on a field trip to three locations, the main one being Tipu Sultan palace. Whilst the students were there on a tour, they had a workbook to complete for these three locations. This palace was built in 1799. The students were excited to see the historical site. There you could see what remained of the palace after the British had attacked it.
The next location was a jail where the British where prisoners of war. The same tour guide showed us around and we even went into some of the jail cells. In the jail cell, the tour guide showed a poem that one imprisoned Britisher wrote while staying there. Then, the students attempted to write a poem as well.
There was a temple there as well. The tour guide talked about the temple for a while, but students were curious as to why there where spikes on the doors of the jail. Everyone was surprised to hear that it was to keep elephants from head butting and breaking the doors.
The last location was the armory. There wasn't much there other than the fact that gun powder used to be stored there. Overall this Day of travelling to historical places was a new experience for everyone and all students got to learn something new about Bangalore's history.
