Dayalbagh Gardens, Agra

Dayalbagh (State: Uttar Pradesh) is at a distance of 15 kms from Agra. Here in 1861, Shiv Dayal Sahib stared a religious movement known as Radhasoami Satsang Movement, that is an amalgamation of a number of other religions. In his memory his disciples constructed the Dayalbagh Gardens.

This is actually not a flower garden, but home for a monument with beautiful carvings.

You're right. It is not a flower garden but a great monument!

I like to add to your India trivia: Indians are one of the few early travelers in the Philippines (the others are Chinese) and they never colonized my country!
