Mausoleum of Ram Rai Darbar




The Mausoleum of Ram Rai Darbar was built by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, after the saintís death in 1687. It is situated in the streets of Paltan Bazaar in Dehradun. Ram Rai Darbar was the son of the seventh guru of the Sikhs and became the eighth guru. But he was ex-communicated from the Sikh faith for performing tricks for the Mughal emperor. Later Ram Rai established his own religious order and became very famous. The magnificent tomb contains an onion type dome at the center and has four minarets, which are covered with murals of flowers and animals. There is a chamber which keeps the bed used by Ram Rai.
