Golgumbaz| Whispering Gallery| Karnataka|Travel|2cleverfools

The Mughal architecture is famous for it’s huge structure and uniqueness. Bijapur now named as Vijayapur was under the rule of Mohammed Adil Shah. This mausoleum was built in 1656.

Golgumbaz means circular dome. This monument is huge and shows the elegance of the Mughal architecture. The central dome has a diameter of 44 meters and is second largest in the world. The uniqueness of the dome is that it stands without the support of the pillar.

Inside the mausoleum there is a circular whispering gallery. Another special feature is that even a small whisper in the gallery is amplified and is carried across 40 meters in the vast dome and can be clearly heard. A special feature is that the sound made inside is echoed 7 times.

Listen to the sound in the video carefully.
