Let's Go On A Journey!


"Let's go on a Journey!" is about planning a journey. We share information on where we would start, where we would like to go and how we plan to get there. Once arrived at our destination we write a post card capturing our experiences of the journey and our impressions of our destination. This is a cross curriculum project for all age groups combining language, arts, geography, maths, cultural understanding, social - and environmental awareness with planning and recording skills.

The Indian capital city of Delhi has a long history as the capital of several empires. The earliest architectural relics date back to the Mauryan Period (c. 300 BC); since then, the site has seen continuous settlement. In 1966, an inscription of the Mauryan Emperor Ashoka (273-236 BC) was discovered near Srinivaspuri. Two sandstone pillars inscribed with the edicts of Ashoka were brought to by Firoz Shan Tughlaq in the 14th century. The famous Iron Pillar near the Qutub Minar was commissioned by the emperor Kumara Gupta I of the Gupta Dynasty (320-540) and transplanted to Delhi during the 10th century. Eight major cities have been situated in the Delhi area. The first five cities were in the southern part of present-day Delhi.

Though settlements have been dated to have been taking place in Delhi for millenia, there is no record to stand by that claim. Delhi is generally considered a close to 5000-year old city, as per Ancient Indian text The Mahabharata, since the first ever mention of the city is found in this religious scripture. Therefore, except the scripture, archaeological evidences to book the city's Ancient history are as good as nought. As a result, Delhi's Ancient history finds no records and this period may be regarded as the lost period of its history. Extensive coverage of Delhi's history begins with the onset of the Delhi Sultanate in the 12th century. Since then, Delhi had been the seat of Islamic and British rulers until India's independence in 1947. The core of Delhi's tangible heritage is a mix of Hindu-Islamic with some British-styled architectures and zones in Lutyens' Delhi dating to the British rule in India. Whatever records exist of Delhi - in the form of scriptures or archaeological evidences, they crown Delhi as the Capital city of some empire or the other all through, with minor random breaks in between, making Delhi one of the longest serving Capitals in the world.






Green Facts: 

1. Delhi is one of the 'greenest' cities in the world with a green cover of almost 20%. 

2. The entire public transport of the city runs on environment friendly Compressed Natural Gas.

Interesting Facts:

3. Qutub Minar in Delhi is the world's tallest brick minaret.

4. The walled city of Delhi originally had fourteen gates. Five are still standing.  Here's the provenance behind their names. Ajmeri Gate: Facing Ajmer in Rajasthan; Lahori Gate: Facing Lahore in Pakistan. Kashmiri Gate: Pointing North to Kashmir. Delhi Gate: Road to earlier cities of Delhi Turkman Gate:  Named after pious saint Hazrat Shah Turkam.

5. In between the rubble of the fifth city of Delhi – Feroze Shah Kotla stands the 3 century B.C. Ashokan Pillar. Emperor Feroze Shah Tughlaq brought this 27 tonne pillar to Delhi from Topar in Ambala, where the great Emperor Ashoka erected it.

Weird Fact:

6. Delhi has an International Toilet museum.

Spicy Fact:

7. Khari Baoli is the Asia's largest wholesale spice market. A must visit for the once-in-a-lifetime overdose of a spice cocktail high.

Random Facts:

8. Traffic in Delhi is like traffic in London.  Drivers sit on the right side of the car.

9. Three-wheeled vehicles called Autos are a great way to see the city over short distances. And test your faith in God.

10. Delhi has a rail museum with steam-age behemoths.

Fun fact:

12. Every Delhiite is ever ready to help you out with directions. They will direct you even when they do not know what you are talking about. So check, crosscheck. And check again.



Facts about London

London is made up of two ancient cities which are now joined together.

1.       They are:

·         the City of London, known  simply as 'the City' which is the business and financial heart of the United Kingdom. It is also known as the Square Mile (2.59 sq km/1 sq mi). It was the original Roman settlement (ancient Londinium), making it the oldest part of London and already 1,000 years old when the Tower of London was built.

·         the City of Westminster, where Parliament and most of the government offices are located. Also Buckingham Palace, the official London residence of the Queen and the Royal family are located there too.

2.       London is the biggest city in Britain and in Europe.

3.       Is the ninth largest city in the world and the largest metropolitan area in the European Union.

4.       The tallest building in London is the Canary Wharf Tower.

5.       London was the first city in the world to have an underground railway, known as the 'Tube'.

6.      There are over 100 theatres in London, including 50 in the West End.

8.       London will host the Olympics for the third time in 2012 (1908 and 1948). The first city to do so.

9.       Richard the Lionheart introduced swans to Britain in the 12th century, from Cyprus. Mute swans on parts of the Thames are owned by the Crown. 

12.   London’s ring-road the M25, is the largest orbital in the world (at 122 miles).

13.   Big Ben is a bell, not a clock. The tower it’s housed in, is simply referred to as the Clock Tower. 

20.   London began life as Londinium, the Roman fort at the Thames crossing. During the Golden Period of Roman occupation it was called Augusta. Later during the Saxon period of occupation it was known as Lundenwic (actually an area west of Londinium near present day Trafalgar Square). During the 9th century the old abandoned Londinium was repopulated and known as Lundenburh and Lundenwic was depopulated and renamed Ealdwic (old town) - which is where the present district 'Aldwych' gets its name. After that it was called London, and so it remains. London has had five names in the last 20 centuries.
