Owner description: The Neo-Dravidian-style Vidhana Soudha is the seat of the state legislature while the red Attara Kacheri houses the High Court. In 2005, an annex called the Vikas Soudha was inaugurated, designed as an exact replica of the Vidhana Soudha. Though these buildings cannot be visited, they can be viewed from the outside.

From far the whole building has a nice architecture. Vidhana Soudha is the State Assembly and as such we are not allowed to go and see. We could only stop over by the roadside to take some pictures

My taxi driver just showed it to me from outside. But it looked unlike any government building that I have seen in my life so far. Majestic and splendid. Should have been a palace instead.

Most of the reviews here are spot on. The whole area does have great architecture but for keen photographers it is difficult to get clean shots. Security is very tight, not surprising for this region, so it means no just wandering around inside the grounds and the nearby metro works has very excitable security guards also eager for you not...

We just took a small stroll near this place only from outside. The roads near it are cramped because of the work going nearby. But it's really beautiful from the outside representing more of the indian architecture. Worth a try.

There is also a replica built just beside it due to not having... More

A flight of 45 steps (204 ft wide and 70 ft deep) remind you of steps of Rashtrapati Bhawan New -Delhi. Its Banquet Hall has excellent life-size portraits of... More
