More than 100 students and their teachers and 15 regular walkers at the Heritage Walks

Bhubaneswar:11/11/18: More than 100 students and their teachers from city-based Amrita Vidyalayam and 15 regular walkers at the 47th Monks, Caves and Kings (MCK) had a wonderful time at the famous Jain site of Udayagiri-Khandagiri as they explored the rock-cut caves listening to the tales and several students enjoying the sketches of the caves during their date with history.

Subhangi Mohanty a student of Class IX of Amrita Vidyalayam was fascinated about knowing the stories behind the rocky wonderland. “I have come here several times in the past, but never had an opportunity to know the interesting stories behind. I will definitely come again and join the walk,’’ she said.

Mayank Pattanaik from Class IX of the school termed the experience of the day as “wonderful’’ and “educative.’’

Saloni Priyadarshini from Class IX said “we are lucky to be part of the walk as the guide told the stories behind Emperor Kharavela, his empire and how once the Kalingan kingdom had a dominance over 40 percent of the landmass of the sub-continent.’’
