The circular gallery which runs at the point where the vault of the Dome starts to curve inwards, is called the Whispering Gallery. The name comes from the fact that a person who whispers facing the wall on one side, can be clearly heard on the other, since the sound is carried perfectly around the vast curve of the Dome.
