Together with the Sessions Court and the University they form a formidable trio of heritage buildings of superb architecture near the Oval Maidan and the Churchgate Station. Although the access can be difficult in the two courts you may have a chance to visit the University and by all means you can walk around them and take photos from different... More

All the 3 structures are connected internally (almost harry potter-ish). For security reasons, no... More

The area it is... More
