The High Court, besides being the seat of justice, one of the oldest courts in India, is housed in a beautiful building of British period. It can be seen from outside only, as the entry is restricted.

Only for history buffs - do visit the room where Tilak was tried for sedition and there is a plaque in his memory. The High Court itself is quite crowded - with high ceilings and distinctly British aura.

Unless you are legally required to go there - give this place a miss. While the building may have been nice in its heyday - it now is super crowded and not well maintained.

The Architecture of Bombay High Court is from British times, and it is beautiful in that sense. Once you get inside though you notice the absolutely run down state of the building. And of course, it is overflowing with lawyers and anxious people. Every time I go here, it seems to be in some perpetual renovation.

The highest court in the state is Stately and Imposing structure. The building is a great feat of architecture built during the British Raj. It is crowded and hectic on most days. Visit it as a tourist it is interesting

Don't go here to see anything except the architecture and the place where Lokmanya Tilak defied the British judge. It is crowded and not well maintained.

This is the highest forum of Justice , just below the Supreme Court which is located in New Delhi. The place is bustling with activity on any given day and you may catch a glimpse of a known / famous personality every other day. Court rooms are airconditioned. A visit is sure to give you an awe inspiring feeling.
