• Jaipur: Make an Impression

EDVENTURE EXPLAINED

WHY DID WE CHOOSE JAIPUR?

Jaipur is considered the first planned city of India. A Bengali architect Vidhyadhar Bhattacharya used the guiding principles of Shilpa Shastra (the science of Indian architecture) to design the entire city. An architectural and urban planning wonder aside, the city is steeped in India’s rich cultural heritage and is the center of the mighty Rajput heritage.

What does this journey offer?

The journey enables students to explore the impressions that Rajput rule (specifically Sawai Jai Singh II) imprinted on the city of Jaipur. Students create their own impressions of Rajasthan’s rich cultural heritage, including the influences of various handicrafts through workshops led by master craft persons and team based activities.
