Dehradun. Inamullah Building Dehradun stands in the main market of Uttarakhand’s capital Dehradun with a long history for the last 106 years. In the year 1917, when the country was under British rule, Inamullah Sheikh of Dehradun had built a 400 meter long building. He built it as a guest house. The name of this building was named Inamullah Building after his name. There has been a lot of change in the appearance of the two-storey Inamullah building. Many shops have been built on the ground floor, so this area has now taken the form of a market. It is said that Inamullah Sheikh had built this building like a fort.
