| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The most imposing and original of all Indian domes are those of the Jumma Musjid and of the Tomb of Mahmûd, both at Bijapur. Gol Gumbaz is the mausoleum of Mohammed Adil Shah (1627-1657) of the Adil Shahi dynasty of Indian sultans, who ruled the Sultanate of Bijapur from 1490 to 1686. The structure consists of a massive square chamber measuring nearly 50 m (160 ft) on each side and covered by a huge dome 37.9 m (124 ft) in diameter making it the second largest pre-modern dome in the entire world (after the dome of Hagia Sophia and Pantheon).
