Overview

India has historically been inhabited by the people of different sects and religions and this confluence of cultures is most apparent in Agra’s landmarks. On this guided tour of mausoleums of Hindu and Muslim leaders, visit the Dayal Bagh and the Tomb of Akbar at Sikandra with your knowledgeable guide. The Dayal Bagh is commonly known as Swami Bagh Samadhi and is mainly the mausoleum of Huzur Swamiji Maharaj (Shri Shiv Dayal Singh Seth). He established the Radhaswami Faith and the devotees regard the Samadhi to be sacred. Radha Swami Samadhi is the head quarter of the Radha-Swami sect and attracts innumerable devotees every year.


This 100 year old structure preserves the sacred ashes of the spiritual leader of the faith.  The main structure is a magnificent building standing 110 feet high and constructed in pure white pietradura inlaid marble work. It's rumored that the building here has been under construction for the last 100 years and continues to believe that construction here should never stop!


Thereafter proceed to Sikandra. The emperor Akbar chose this as a site for his mausoleum but he died before it could be completed, so the work was finally completed by his son Jehangir in 1613. The tomb is a combination of Muslim and Hindu architectural styles. The building of red sandstone is four stories tall and the first three stories are of red sandstone, while the fourth is entirely of marble.
