Shri Guru Ram Rai Darbar Sahib in Dehradun is a philanthropic organisation of the Udaseen sect. Sri Guru Ram Rai Ji, the eldest son of the seventh Guru of the Sikhs- Sri Har Rai Ji, had established it for protecting and spreading the traditions, ideals and philosophies of Hinduism Dehradun owes its name and history to the emergence of Sri Guru Ram Rai Ji who came to this then small , green Arcadian abode way back in 1676. He established his ‘ DERA ‘ in Doon Valley which later became popular as ‘DEHRADUN’ During the reigns of Aurangzeb, the Doon valley was Guru Maharaj Ji's property. The Britishers could enter it only after taking permission from the Darbar Sahib. Darbar Sahib still owns a large part of this property.
