From time immemorial, the fragrance of sandalwood has delighted the connoisseurs
of perfume. Mysore, India’s ‘Sandal wood City’ also known as the ‘City of Palaces’ is
the cultural capital of the state of Karnataka. For nearly 6 centuries, the kingdom of Mysore was
ruled by the Wodeyar dynasty, who were patrons of art and culture. An enlightened dynasty, the
Vodeyars contributed significantly to the cultural and economic growth of the city and the state. In
Mysore city, an ‘old-world’ ambience prevails. One can almost see the ghosts of years gone by,
hear a faint battle-cry, the clash of weapons, or the boom of a cannon.

Mysore palace is the official residence of the Vodeyar family and was the administrative seat of the
kingdom of Mysore for centuries. Built mainly in the Indo-Saracenic style of architecture, it houses
a treasure trove of beautiful paintings and objects d’art, collected over the years by the royal
family. Antique lovers will find it hard to budge from here, with such a visual feast at hand.
In Hindu folklore, Mysore was plagued by the demon-king Mahishasura, a buffalo-headed monster.
An ancient stone staircase of 1008 steps leads to the temple of the goddess Chamundeshwari, who
fought and killed the demon, thereby liberating the city from his tyranny. Halfway to the shrine is a
huge statue of a Nandi bull, carved out of a single piece of black granite. Hiking up this historic hill
is a pleasurable experience, from the top of which lies a breath taking view of the city of Mysore

FSL-India, (Field Services and Inter-cultural Learning - India) is a youth development organisation focused towards Inter-cultural Learning through Voluntary Services set up to promote Global Understanding by providing opportunities to the youth to work in different cultural contexts to appreciate Inter-cultural learning. Thereby, reducing boundaries and bringing people to work together in harmony by understanding the Inter-cultural aspects focusing towards development of people and society through youth mobility and volunteerism.

It was formed with the support of like-minded National and International Organizations with a primary purpose to bring about global transformation, progress and growth through youth exchange programs.

FSL-India has been running work camps all over India since 2001. Over the years, FSL-India has developed a strong network of local partners and local volunteers in the regions where we conduct our camps. In every work camp, FSL-India works in partnership with local NGOs – since they are able to identify the problems and needs of the locality. This helps us achieve sustainability and a larger impact in the work that we do. Partnering with a local NGO also helps in reaching out to the local community. In addition, FSL-India works in various fields in cooperation with Archaeological Survey of India, Ministry of Women and Child Welfare, Ministry of Health, Education, Forest and Wildlife Departments and Local Self-governance Bodies
