16th March 2010: I had reached Bijapur at 11:40AM and checked into a nice AC DBL Room (Rs 800/-) in Hotel Navratna In'tl on Station Road; less than a KM away from Golgombuz site. It was hot in the afternoon, so I did'nt stir out of the room until 4:00PM when it had cooled down a bit. I walked to Golgumbaz and did a quick tour of it including climbing up 7 stories in the narrow-stone steps, of the south minaret, to reach the Whispering Gallery atop the central dome.
Coming out of Gol-Gumbaz at 5:00PM, I took an Auto-Rickshaw to take me to some of the other important Bijapur sights, over next 2 hour, for a fare of Rs 225/-. He took me to sevnen places, including the 2 main ones - Jama Masjid and Ibrahim Rouza.
