FORM 4 TRIP TO THE BALAJI TEMPLE, BIRMINGHAM

DSCN0092

On Thursday, Form Four pupils visited the Balaji Temple in Birmingham.

The Hindu temple is a collection of small shrines, large mandirs and beautiful hills and scenery.

The pupils were given a very well explained tour of the temple grounds, and were shown many different features and beliefs that a Hindu holds.

A fantastic time was had by all and pupils most enjoyed the hands-on experience they were granted, including taking off their shoes before each shrine, sampling some of the food used during Hindu worship and exploring a very unique way of life.

This tour of the temple gave them a fascinating insight into the Hindu faith, and they are keen to explore this further in their Religious Studies lessons on Hinduism. This trip helped pupils to discover the diversity and harmony that many different lifestyles share. 

The pupils showed utmost respect and dignity during the trip, and the staff and volunteers involved were proud of their efforts. One pupil quoted, "This has been my best trip so far!"
