Gurdwara Sri Janam Asthan Guru Ram Das is situated inside Delhi Darwaza, near Purani Kotwali Chowk in Chuni Mandi.

Sri Guru Ram Das Ji was born at Chuna Mandi Bazaar at the site of Gurdwara Sri Janam Asthan Guru Ram Das on 24th Sept 1534 AD and spent the first seven years of his life here.

The ancestral home of Sat Guru was very small so when Kanwar Kharak Singh was born to Maharani Nakain she asked her husband, Maharaja Ranjit Singh, to rebuild the Gurdwara to celebrate the birth of her son.

Maharaja Ranjit Singh purchased the surrounding buildings from the Qazis and had a Gurdwara of dimensions 122'6 x 97'6 built.

This is a modest building, built in the style of Sri Harmandir Sahib. There is courtyard on the west side. The Nishan Sahib is hoisted in the western corner.

Gurdwara Sri Janam Asthan Guru Ram Das was the place from where 'Singh Sabha Lehar' (Singh Sabha Movement) started. The Gurdwara remained under the control of Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee from 1927 to 1947.

The Gurdwara is now under the control of the Pakistan Auqaf Department. There are 8 shops endowed in the name of this Gurdwara. At the time of partition in 1947 18 Sikhs faced martyrdom and were brutally murdered by muslims here.
