Brilliant sight, a must-see, blah blah blah but please remember that it is in Bijapur and that the town itself is not much to write home about. Gol Gumbaz is an enormous building with a spectacular dome, apparently second only to the one in the Vatican. One of the ways it is advertised is that a whisper is amplified ten fold inside the dome. This, ironically, leads hordes of families to scream at the top of their lungs inside the dome which lead me to conclude that this must easily be one of the nosiest places on the planet. The walk up the stairs to the top is well worth it by the way cause then you get to actually see the marvelous dome from close by. It is a little scary though and if vertigo and the odd sensation of wanting to jump to your death at funny heights with little to no railing is your thing give it some thought beforehand. I thought it was quite 'dizzying'.
