Gol Gumbaz, the glorious tomb of Mohammed Adil Shah, is situated in Bijapur
. The dome of this 17th century monument is considered to be the world's second largest after St Peter's Basilica of Vatican City, Rome.
This tomb is a well known example of the Islamic Architecture in India. Its unique architecture consists of a simple building having a hall of 1704 sq m in area, buttressed by octagonal seven-storey towers at each of the corners. The acoustical system in the dome is so designed that it reverberates even a faint whisper such that the sound returns to the listener exactly nine times. The monument has a total diameter of 38 m.
Gol Gumbaz is at a distance of one kilometer from Bijapur Railway Station.
