The Queen of Hills, Mussoorie, was founded when the East India Company Officer, Captain Fredrick Young, set up a hunting box in Landour in 1823. Mussoorie soon became a preferred watering hole for officers and their families.
This walk traces the origins of the hill station, giving an overview of how this spot, almost a kilometer above the plains,evolved through its denizens – the deposed rajas and their jilted wives, the British aristocrats and merchants of Char Dukan, all emerge as characters.
