• Bengaluru, Mysore and Ooty: The Southern Triangle

EDVENTURE EXPLAINED

Why did we choose Bengaluru, Mysore and Ooty?

Bengaluru, Mysore and Ooty together surprise you with ecological proliferation, which is evident in their well-maintained Botanical Gardens. Also, Bengaluru and Mysore are indispensable to South Indian history. They offer a peak into the Kingdom of Mysore, from the Wadiyar Dynasty to the period of Tipu Sultan’s reign. Ooty’s significance as the Queen of Hill Stations keeps it at the top of the list of many a Southern sojourn.

What does this journey offer?

The Southern Triangle allows students to discover the important palaces and forts of the Wadiyar Dynasty. They learn about Tipu Sultan’s role in the Mysore Kingdom as a master administrator and a pioneer in the use of rocket artillery. Lastly, the journey offers an enlightening exploration into ecological richness. Botanical Gardens of Bengaluru alone house the largest known Cotton Silk tree and a 20 million year old fossil tree along with many indigenous and foreign flora.
