Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati, one of the greatest spiritual Luminaries and social reformers of the world, espoused in 19th century to return to society persons imbued with highest Vedic ideals and nationalism. He considered education to be the only means to achieve this goal. It was for this reason only that after the demise this great path maker, a group of his followers decided in 1885 to start an educational institution in his memory. After the establishment of DAV College Trust and Management Society, DAV School, Lahore, the first institution came into existence which soon grew into DAV College, Lahore, under the visionary leadership of Mahatma Hans Raj.
