Visit to Jantar Mantar

A field trip was organized for the students of the Support School to the world famous astronomical observatory on 9 October 2009.

The visit was a first for most of the students to this unique structure built in the heart of Delhi by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur (1699-1743).

The imposing structure fascinated the children and they went about exploring the various instruments and understanding their purpose.

The trip included a visit to the Children’s Park in the vicinity of India Gate. The older children having already done some ‘research’ on Jantar Mantar as well as India Gate on the internet during one of their computer classes at the Support School, guided and informed their younger colleagues. The visit was packed with outdoor games, and concluded with some welcome refreshments.
