This historical monument from the medieval times is an ever-popular tourist attraction. The opening hours for the Gol Gumbaz itself start from 6 am. Tourists who are interested in visiting the 'Whispering Gallery' inside the dome are better off visiting the monument as early in the morning as possible. Throngs of tourists (mostly Indian citizens) visit in the later part... More

This is Vijayapur's star turn, and it doesn't disappoint. In front of the domed building is an excellent museum, which is, I think, best explored at the end of our visit. To reach the base of the dome, you need to climb up seven storeys. Visitors need to know that they are required to remove their shoes or sandals before... More

The Gol Gumbaz is a fantastic example of how advanced technology was in ancient India. The architecture is simple but beautiful, the interior of the Gumbaz is serene, the climb up the minaret to the whispering gallery is easier than anticipated due to well laid out stops at each level. The whispering gallery itself is a marvel of sound engineering.... More
