During my school years, I was fascinated by the exotic destinations and grand monuments I read in my History textbooks. I vividly remember that in my 5th grade, I was completely mesmerized by the grandeur & story behind Gol Gumbaz (in Bijapur, Karnataka in India) as described in the history textbook. The memory remained with me for many years and this monument was one of the must visit places on my travel list.
Life has a funny way of making our childhood wishes come true and I got to visit this monument this month on my work trip! Never in my dreams would I have thought that I will get to visit Gol Gumbaz in such a way, but I am glad that it happened the way it did!!.....as I got to experience it in the best way possible as a traveler.
