Gol Gumbaz in Bijapur, India is a unique architectural design, the largest unsupported dome in the world, covering the largest floor area too. Built some 350 years back, its speciality is the whispering gallery. Due to the accoustic characteristics of the circular platform and big dome, even the tick of a wrist watch can be heard at the opposite side more than 25m away, and any sound made can be heard echoing several times for about half a minute. One of the must-see places in India.
