Fuller, a British engineer, the Court is a masterpiece of Gothic architectural style that was apparently modeled on a German castle. Its structure is made up of black stone, with octagonal towers. On top of the building, statues of Justice and Mercy inspire upholding... More

If you are in the original Mumbai as was planned by the Britishers, you will come across many amazing Victorian styled buildings - the high court being one of them. If you love architecture, it will be worth seeing this from a distance and wonder how beautiful Mumbai was then when it was Bombay.

OK so I'm half kidding... this old British colonial building is stained black from the smog and i could only look at it from the outside... it looks lonely.. almost abandoned.. which is bizarre in an overcrowded place like Mumbai. And considering the embattled state of "rule of law" in India somehow the fact it looks like the building is... More

Too bad they won't let you take pictures - much like every administrative building in India, this one is also monitored by heavily-armed guards.

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

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
