Gol Gumbaz

AN ACOUSTIC AND ARCHITECTURAL WONDER

GOL GUMBAZ

This is the mausoleum of Muhammed Adil Shah. It houses the world’s second largest dome, unsupported by pillars -- an acoustic and architectural wonder. Built in 1656, its most arresting features are the seven-storied octagonal spires at the four corners and the heavy bracketed cornice below the parapet. The amazing whispering gallery distinctly echoes the faintest whisper 11 times.
