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.

Breathtaking view, excellent architecture. The view has been spoiled by all the construction bang in front of the building. It is such an eye-sore. I hope the re-store the old charm

This is an obvious must-see for the first-time traveller. Worth admiring this monument. Has been a landmark for long and is worth a mention.
