At a distance of 9 km from Agra Cantonment railway Station, Soami Bagh Temple is situated in Dayalbagh in the outskirts of Agra.
The Soami Bagh Samadhi is mainly the mausoleum of Huzur Swamiji Maharaj. The Soami Bagh is also called as Radha Swami Samadhi. He established the Radhaswami Faith. The Radha Soami Satsang Movement was started in 1861 as an effort to amalgamate all the world religions like Hinduism, Christianity, Sikhism and Buddhism and so this building reflects the styles seen in temples, mosques, gurudwaras and viharas.
The building is 110 feet in height made of white marbles and features numerous pillars and fine pietradura inlay work on the inner walls. Construction began in February 1904 and has been continuously under construction for the past 100 years.
Located adjacent to the mausoleum, there is Bhajan Ghar the place where, Soamiji Maharaj carried out the spiritual practices during his lifetime; the Bhajan Ghar also houses satsang once per day. Bhandara festivals are celebrated here which attracts large number of devotees.
