• Agra: Love Unbound

EDVENTURE EXPLAINED

Why did we choose Agra?

Agra is home to one of the seven wonders of the world; Taj Mahal. This white mausoleum is not just a symbol of love of the once richest man on the planet, for his favourite wife, but it also stands for a craftperson’s dedication to his craft, an architect’s commitment to his vision, and mankind’s unstinting pursuit for excellence. The journey to Agra is not just focused on learning about the Mughals, but extends to gaining an understanding on the commitment that each human being has to make to pursue excellence in his/her chosen career

What does this journey offer?

Going far beyond the standard guided tour, students will discover the Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri and Agra Fort in their own way, and better yet, will present their findings to their peers creatively. Both learning and fun come together in perfection, as students discover a city which captivates tourists from all over the world.
