Built in 1659, is the mausoleum of Mohammed Adil Shah and some members of his family. Its vast dome is said to be the second largest dome, unsupported by pillars, in the world, after St. Peter's in the Vatican City of Rome. It is constructed in such a way that even a pin drop can be heard distinctly from across a space of 38 m, in the Whispering Gallery. The acoustics here are such that any sound made is said to be repeated 10 times over. In the surrounding ornamental gardens is an archeological museum.
