Class V Visit to Humayun’s Tomb
6th March, 2018
When the buses stopped, excited and enthusiastic VVS students marched out. We walked up to Isa Khan, a Mughal nobleman’s tomb, gaping at the shapes, colours and architecture. Then finally we reached Humayun’s Tomb, where the second Mughal Emperor was buried. The tessellations were fascinating. Heptagons, Octagons, Hexagons and Nonagons joined ha day to create enchanting jaalis. Floors, ceilings and walls were covered with shapes. This was geometrical paradise! We settled down near a jaali or tessellation and copied or took ideas from them and made our own tessellations. We retreated to the buses, chatting about our experiences. Humayun’s Tomb was one of the most enjoyable and educational school trips.
