This is state court of two Indian states and is always over crowded. any way this is nice place to see the interior architecture and designs of building. The visitors can get entry pass and may visit till open hand monument and terrace also. The open area and terrace area gives magnificant view of sorroundings and green space of chandigarh.

The building design is terrible, a concrete jungle, should never have been built. This is another Le Corbusier example of how not to design and build.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court serves two States, as is evident from its name. Located with the Shivalik range of hills in the backdrop, it presents a nice climate to the weary litigants and advocates. The building is imposing too.

Do not miss the insides of the building like the court room and the terrace areas. You can either take a pass from outside the high court to visit the building from inside, or just coax the guards and have them to allow you a short visit inside.
