About Darbar & Trust Activities


Smt. Dayalibai w/o Udhasingh Ramchandani GURU NANAK DARBAR was started on 10th February 1970 in a barrack opposite Adarsh Nagar Bldg 9, Worli, Mumbai, India and the premises were given in memory of Smt. Dayalibai w/o Udhasingh Ramchandani. A new Trust by the same name was formed by like-minded people and office bearers of Worli Colonies Sindhi Panchayat. The Panchayat used to celebrate Sri Guru Nanak Devji’s Birthday annually at grounds of Worli Sports Club. The Darbar soon became popular amongst Sindhis & Sikh followers of Sri Guru Nanak Dev.

In early 2001 or so, the old Darbar premises were taken over and in its place a new multi-storey building “Siddhivinayak Horizon” Towers came up. The Darbar was given a new premise in this tower and in October 2006, we shifted to the present spacious and airconditioned premises at “Siddhivinayak Horizon”.

The Present Trustees are:

  • Lal T. Hazari ( +919821026969)

The Darbar is run on a no-profit basis and is a registered Charitable Trust.  The Trustees are grateful to Shri N.V.
