visiting the Gol Gumbaz Mausoleum


Have you come across the Gol Gumbaz in Bijapur, India on your travels? I hadn’t, but if you are close to the region, it seems like a fun place to visit and I highly recommend checking out this post from Sandy, on his blog Voyager.

Visiting the Gol Gumbaz

As always with Sandy’s posts, it’s written so well and tells the story of his visit with plenty of helpful tips. It is also complemented with some wonderful pictures and video the captures the haunting sounds.

“Did you know that Gol Gumbaz, a mausoleum in Bijapur, India is the second largest dome in the world after the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican? Also, any sounds made inside the “Whispering Gallery” echoes back 7 -10 times! Another remarkable feature of the dome is that it stands proudly without the support of pillars!”
