about gol gumbaz

The Gol Gumbaz or the Gol Gumbadh means "rose dome" in reference to its shape, which is akin to a budding rose. It is a mausoleum of Mohammad Adil Shah, the sultan of Bijapur.  It also contains the tombs of his wives and children. With an area more than 1700 sq m, this mausoleum is one of the largest single chamber spaces in the world. Though simple in architecture, many historians believe it is a structural triumph of Deccan architecture. The "Whispering Gallery" runs along the inside the dome, where due to the acoustics of the space, even the softest whispers can be heard on the other side of the mausoleum.
