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.

For any traveller interested in Colonial architecture, a visit to the High Court is a must.

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

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

There is nothing new I can say about this building. Just take into account that it is not a tourist attraction, but an importanmt building for Indian Justice. 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
