Dayal Bagh is a pilgrimage site in Agra, which is popular for the memorial of Shiv Dayal Sahib, the founder of the Radha Soami Satsang Movement. He started this religious organisation in 1861, which combines the elements from Hinduism, Christianity, Sikhism and Buddhism.
The memorial in Dayal Bagh has been built to worship Shiv Dayal Sahib, who was popularly known as Soami Maharaj by his disciples. The 110 feet high memorial is a combination of temple, gurudwara, vihara and mosque.
The memorial is made of pure white marble and features numerous pillars and fine pietra dura inlay work on the inner walls. This building has been continuously under construction for the past 100 years.
