must reach there before the
crowd of people gather, such that you can hardly
hear yourself breathe. Further in the city,
you must watch out for the Ibrahim Rauza. Built
on a single slab of bed-rock, the architect
has attained a perfect balance on the site,
with the mausoleum on the left and the prayer
hall to the right.
A must-see in the city is the Malik-e-Maidan,
a colossal bell metal gun which is placed in
the walls of the city. The most unique feature
of this gun is that it is cool to touch even
under a blazing sun and when tapped gently it
tinkles like a bell.
All in all, Bijapur has monuments
which you will not find in their original shape,
but are well worth the look.
