Study tours are very important for students. People undertake tours for business, for sight-seeing or for necessity. But students undertake tours for educational purposes. A study tour teaches and teaches better than teachers and books. No sense-organ is more potent a factor in learning than the eye. We hear and yet we may doubt. We read and yet we may question. But once we see a thing all our doubts are set at rest. Our book knowledge is confirmed. No amount of reading or lecturing can give us the same knowledge about the seats of our ancient civilization at Paharpur, Mahasthangarh or Shalban Vihara as we can derive from visiting these places personality. Book knowledge unless supplemented by practical experience is not a help but is often a hindrance. Thus study tours are an essential part of education. Considering their importance, the outstanding educational institutions make an arrangement of study tours for their students every year.
