Culture is a big part of our daily lives, where many traditions and customs are followed. Culture also plays an important role in the development inherited of any nation. Culture represents a set of shared attitudes, values, goals and practices. Culture and creativity manifest themselves in almost all economic, social and other activities & cultural constructs have profound implications on us. Our Vision is to help one connect back to their Roots.

There are about 34,500 Hindu Temples, most of them being of hoary antiquity in the State and from about 600-650 Years the Maharaja’s build a Vishnu / Shiva or Devi ( Shakthi) temple in almost every Village and donated a piece of land and gave it as a (Inaam) in the same village or neighbouring village.
About 150 Years ago the Rulers of Mysore the Wadiyar’s had instructed the Darbar Commisioners to make this piece of land in the Temple’s name and also had appointed a Archaka to each Temple and had passed a order that the particular Archaka /Poojari will do the Nityapuje at the temple and maintain the temple, from them on the Archaka’s or Poojari’s as their lieneage progressed are continuously doing the Pooja.
From 1955 all the Land and belongings of the temple got devolved into the State Govenrment.
