Bijapur means the city of victory.

The Gol Gumbaz is the second largest dome in the world, 124 feet in diameter. The acoustics of the dome make it a whispering gallery. Any whispering on one side of the dome can be heard on the other side. Standing in the dome an echo can be heard 9 times (11 times with fading).
