The Giant Dome is an unique rock formation that is quite large. It is one of the Carlsbad Cavern's truly amazing formations. If I remember correctly it is located in the Big Room.

A must see if you are traveling in New Mexico. We were touring the southwest when we decided to stop at the Carlsbad Caverns. It was so incredible that I can't describe how I felt but breathless. To us, it was better then the Grand Canyon.
