Taj Mahal ko dil se banaya, Gol Gumbaz ko dimag se. This statement made by local guide was very true, when we saw the whispering gallery. Asia's second largest tomb has been built by Mohammed Adil Shahi.

This is a must visit kind of monument. This tomb of Adil Shah is the largest dome in India and second largest dome in the world. The central hall on the ground floor contains the tomb of King Adil Shah. The ceiling of the hall look like a large dome suspended from the sky. We used stairs to reach the... More

Best visited early in the morning to avoid the boisterous crowds that may give you a headache because of all the echoes. Massive, very impressive structure. Worth visiting definitely. Climbing up and down the stairs without your footwear is not very comfortable.

Apart from its impressive size, this is worth a visit for the atmosphere . Worth climbing to the top for views & for the inside of the dome. Excellent museum in gatehouse

Rating effected by the school tour crowds due to some deadline that they have to use up the budget before end of year. The interior was very noisy with every school kid screaming to enjoy the echo effect We exited the place within 5-10 mins! A guide gave some free advise that we should come early in the morning.

You write a big review when you love the place or hate the place... Firstly no queue management while taking tickets...visited on New Year Day and there were thousands of people...just one counter issuing tickets, but 10 different lines...no one was even bothered despite me telling the officials there to make some management...45 minutes and I finally get my tickets......
