Day 3, Thursday.

Dear parents,

Ask your child to read the following information and critically analyze where they want to visit for their UOI summative assessment and why?

Disclaimer: All the selected locations are child-friendly and will be explored by them accompanying a HRT. Kindly avoid influencing for the choice of place as this will not make their reflection very authentic.

Gopi Talav (Talab) is located in the walled city area of Surat in the inner ring (the older fort wall) and the outer ring (the extended fort wall) around the circular lake area measuring about 1,00,000 sq.mt. that includes water body 35,300 sq.mt and surrounding area 64,700 sq.mt. The travel accounts of the 17th century describe Gopi Talav as “an important urban recreational space with religious significance.”

Surat Castle, or Surat Fort, is a 16th-century structure in the city Surat. The Ahmedabad king Sultan Mahmood-III ordered its construction to defend the city from the frequent attacks that had devastated it.

Jagdish Chandra Bose Aquarium is situated in the Pal area of Surat, Gujarat, India. It is the first multidisciplinary underwater aquarium of its kind in the country and named after the Bengali scientist Jagadish Chandra Bose.

English Cemetry: The tombs in English, Dutch and Armenian cemeteries at Surat are reckoned among the most important historical monuments in the city. It is reported that there was so much competition between the Dutch and the English in Surat to impress upon the natives their importance and power that they put mausoleums instead of tombstones. Many of these are so ridiculously large and ornamental resembling Muslim tombs rather than the ordinary tombstones in Europe.

Botanical Garden Surat is popularly known as “Sneh Rashmi Botanical Garden”. This pleasant garden is located on the bank of river “Tapi” in the “Ugat” area of Surat. Surat is one of the largest cities of Gujarat and well known as a “Manchester Of India”. If you are in search of a quiet and peaceful place in this crowded city then Botanical Garden Of Surat is the perfect choice for you. This tranquil place is the habitat of more than 1000 plant species. Nowadays it became one of the most visited attractions for tourist and residents. Lush green garden, Helium Balloon, Toy Train these are some attractions which are attracting many visitors, especially children.
