This is a wonderful example of Gothic architecture, being a heritage building, more than 200 years old. It houses the State Library and has a wonderful collection of books, periodicals and magazines . Historically fascinating building.

I visited here with my friend to search about some historical myths and found the right resources from here. Type of structure of this building is same as british time structure. If you have some extra time in day then you can visit here.
