Abstract: Let $ F$ be a non-Archimedian field. We prove that each open and compact subset of $ \mathrm{GL}_n(F)$ can be decomposed into finitely many open, compact, and self-conjugate subsets. As a corollary, we obtain a short, elementary proof of a well-known theorem of I.M. Gelfand and D.A. Kazhdan.
