Malik-I-Maidan

A HUGE GUN

MALIK-I-MAIDAN

This is a 55-tonne cannon perched on a platform. It is a huge gun made from bell metal by Muhammed Bin Hussain Rumi, which is why it sounds like a bell when tapped. It is 4.2 metres (14 feet) long with a bore of 70 cm (2feet 4 inches) and was sited here in 1632 after it caused havoc at the Battle of Talikota in 1565.
