The Dayalbagh Gardens have been founded in
the memory of Shiv Dayal Sahib the founder of
the Radhasoami Satsang Movement, a religious
movement that was begun in 1861. The movement
basically follows a code that is an amalgamation
of a number of other religions such as Hinduism,
Christianity, Sikhism and Buddhism.
The architecture of the Dayalbagh Gardens follows
much of the same pattern of amalgamation of
the traits of different religions like the Radhasoami
Satsang movement itself. Thus, this beautiful
memorial gives examples of different architectural
styles such as those that can be found in temples,
gurudwaras, viharas and mosques all across the
country. Impressive at a height of around 110
feet, the memorial is built completely in white
marble with majestic pillars.
An interesting feature of the memorial is that
the construction work at the site is a continuous
process. This is due to a belief of the followers
of the faith which insists that tending the
memorial should be a constant process.
