Far from the din and bustle of a city, it is the only surviving historic place in South India with a cultural continuity from 300 BC-1800 AD, which the Archaeological Survey of India acquired in 2004.

The main intention of this exposure visit was to familiarise the students with historical sites and make students understand the history between the nations.
