Nursing Students Summer Field Trip
The 2011 GCF nursing students took a field trip to Kovalam Beach, Mahabalipuram and Velankanni. Kovalam Beach is a beautiful place to spend time located in the far outskirts of the city of Chennai. Mahabalipuram is a very popular tourist place where stone sculptures are the main attractions. The Pallava kings who ruled here promoted monolithic stone sculptures. There are stone carvings on the rocks depicting legendary figures, elephants, monkeys and other animals. Our Lady of Velankanni National Shrine is located on the seashore about 500 kilometers south of Chennai in Tamil Nadu. The shrine is known as “Lourdes of the East” because of its popularity and it attracts pilgrims from all over India and abroad.
