Explore your city, An outing for today’s kids living in cities would be visiting a shopping mall, watching a film or visiting a public park. What if they get a chance to explore monuments in the city? Will it not be an unconventional day out?

Dirty Feet is the organisation offering one day trips in and around Hyderabad for children above 10 years. For this weekend, on July 5, children can opt for the Assal Hyderabad tour.
Assal Hyderabad is a sightseeing trip which offers a peek into Hyderabad's rich heritage and gives a feel of Hyderabadi food, language and culture. Children will be taken around places like The Nizam’s Museum which features the walk-in wardrobe of Mir Mahboob Ali Khan, the sixth Nizam of Hyderabad; a 160 year-old temple in the old city which has forever been a symbol of secularism; a monument built by the last Nizam of Hyderabad in the memory of his mother Zehra; Haveli Khadeem another official residence of the Nizam; the oldest Public Park of Hyderabad, also once known as the Bagh-e-Aam (People's Park in Urdu); a palace built nearly 200 years ago during the Asaf Jahi Dynasty and which was the official residence of the Nizams of Hyderabad; a five-storied Clock Tower built in the year 1892 by a Paigah Noble, and the market that surrounds it.
The trip also includes a visit to the oldest bridge of Hyderabad which resulted in the emergence of our twin cities; the tamarind tree which saved more than 150 lives during the historic floods in the Musi in 1908; the cathedral of the Archdiocese of Hyderabad which is one of the most beautiful churches in the city, an old girls' school and junior college established 103 years ago by Sarojini Naidu, Begum Khadiv Jung and Lady Hydri.
Children will be provided with breakfast, snacks, lunch and bottled water, travel to and from the location will be in a tempo traveller/Swaraj Mazda. The facilitator-child ratio is 1:5 and 25 kids will be taken in one trip.
Here’s to an all new experience packed with fun and excitement for children as they get to see the unseen side of their own city and cherish the stories with their friends who wouldn’t have visited those places earlier.
