This is one of the oldest high courts in India. Built in 1862, it has jurisdiction over the states of Maharashtra and Goa, union territories of Daman & Diu and Dadra & Nagar Haveli. Architecture: Gothic revival in the Early English style. It is 562 feet (171 m) long and 187 feet (57 m) wide. To the west of the central tower are two octagonal towers. The statues of Justice and Mercy are atop this building. The 125th anniversary of the building is slated to be marked by the release of a book, commissioned by the Bar Association, called "The Bombay High Court: The Story of the Building - 1878–2003" by local historians Rahul Mehrotra and Sharada Dwivedi.

this is a Court building with strictest rules. they don't allow cameras here. at least in my case ( i look like a local and not a tourist) they denied me the permission to take the camera with me.

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.
