The high court is another beautiful example of colonial architecture located in the south of the city. Certainly this is not one of the top attractions of Mumbai, in fact for tourists there are many strict rules in force in particular as regards the use of cameras and camcorders. In any case I think it is not worth entering, much... More

This is an 1862 structure.. gorgeous gothic style of architecture. The building looks just like any other stone structure built by the Britishers. However every pillar is distinct with different animal sculpture and in court No 46, the face of Lokmanya Tilak is carved in stone.. All the 3 structures are connected internally (almost harry potter-ish). For security reasons, no... More

A beautiful Gothic example of Colonial architecture, reminiscent of the British rule.Well maintained by Indian standards( pay attention to the towers with allegorical figures of Justice and Mercy). The area it is... More

We only saw this from the outside and could not get inside despite my appeals. Its still known as Bombay High Court, a Gothic revivalist building in an English type completed in 1878 and designed by the British architect Fuller. To the west of the central tower are two octagonal towers with statues of Justice and Mercy on top.
