Visit to Historical Places of Hassan by Cadets of Class VIII

Hassan

    The school organized the picnic for class VIII students on 28-07-17, Friday. The chosen venue for the picnic was Sjravanbelagola, halebidu and Beluru.

   With the heart filled with beatitude and incitement, we left to Shravanbelagola. It must be around 8:30 hrs we reached the famous Jain Pilgrimage town, Shravanbelagola, but we had already caught a glimpse of the huge monolithic statue from quite a distance. I remember reading about the massive statute at Shravanbelagola in my history textbook. However, it is only when the places and the stories we’ve read about visualize in front of our eyes that we begin to appreciate the profound richness of our history, our religious and the various civilizations that passed through the ages.

     From Shravanbelagola with hearts filled with peace & happiness we left to Halebidu. Halebidu literally mean ruined city and got its name after the city was attacked twice be the Delhi Sultanate in the 14th century. The city was the capital of the Hoyasala rulers during the 12th & 13th century. The idea of this temple is believed to have been proposed by one of the ministers under the Hoyasala King. Out of his love & gratitude for the King & Queen.

         From Halebidu we travelled to Beluru. The Channakeshava temple at Balur is dedicated to lord Vishnu and was built in the 12th centrury. We observed that Halebid temple has a more beautiful exterior, Belur has more exquisite carvings in the interior.

                                                                                                                                                     Report by: Ms. Parvathi P, Asst. Master in Maths
