General view of the Sikh temple at Dehra Dun, photographed by Robert and Harriet Tytler in 1858. A caption note accompanying this view reads, "Those who worship in this temple profess a religion between the Mohammedan and Hindoo and composed of Sikhs. Except one of their own sect no person ever had access within the temple until the mutiny. Gaaraa Nanule was the founder of the religion". This temple is of Sikh Guru Ram Rai, who settled at Dehra Dun in Uttar Pradesh at the end of the 17th century. The Sikh religion was a reformist faith founded by Guru Nanak (1469-1539) in the 15th century.
