is now being excavated.
is one of the most breathtaking buildings in Haryana. This building
houses the samadhi of Sh Tara Chand fondly called 'Maharaj ji' by
his followers. The building is situated in the Radhaswami Satsang
Bhawan complex, Dinaud, about 12 km from Bhiwani, Haryana.
The monument is a hexagonal pyramid, with its sides being in the
shape of a star, as Maharaj ji's first name 'Tara' means a star.
The height from the base platform is 88 feet, while the platform
itself is raised 6 feet. Each of the six sides measure about 60
feet at the base. Out of the six, three alternative sides are covered
in white marble while the other three in Italian glass. The samadhi
of Maharaj ji is inside the building in the center of the floor.
A unique thing about the design of this building is that it doesn't
have pillars or columns to support itself.
There is a small beautifully landscaped garden around the monument.
The garden houses the small hut in which Maharaj ji used to meditate.
The building is not yet complete as some minor works remains to
be done and it is expected to be fully completed by September, 2001.
The whole cost of constructing this monument was borne by the followers
of Maharaj ji living in India and abroad.
The Haryana government needs to develop the immediate area around
the building and repair roads so that this spot can become one of
the major tourist attractions of Haryana.
Prithviraj ki Kutchery (also known
as Baradari) is where Prithviraj Chauhan, the Hindu ruler, held
a durbar of sorts.

and Baba Shami Dayal and the mosque and tomb of Raja Khetri.
