In the early days, Mussoorie was inhabited by a shepherd community whose cattle use to graze on the ‘Mansoor’ shrubs found along the hill slopes. A British military officer by the name Lt. Frederick Young is said to have established the town of Mussoorie. Captain Young and FJ Shore were enamoured by the natural beauty while hunting and hence they set up a hunting lodge on the Camel’s Back road. \n\nThis town was never an official summer capital like Shimla, but it always provided a homely environment to the homesick British. Many beautiful, vintage building structures are proof of the importance this place had earned from the British people back then. In April 1959, the Dalai Lama moved the exiled Tibetan government here, further advancing the importance of Mussoorie. But it was later shifted to Dharamshala. Mussoorie retains its charm from yesteryears and awaits discovery by the curious traveller.
