Photographer's Note

Main tower of High Court, Kolkata.
This is the oldest High Court in India (1872 AD). The site was once occupied by the Supreme Court of India.

Famous architect Walter L.B. Granville, who designed the General Post Office of Kolkata, was the chief architect of this building. Though the design was influenced by that of Town Hall, Hamburg (Hamburg Rathaus) and Cloth Hall of Belgium, the Kolkata High Court building is a dramatically original composition which serves as one of Kolkata’s most impressive pieces of architecture.

The globe-like structure is not a part of this building, but a part of New Secretariat, a building behind the High Court.

The complex is huge but the photo does not show that.
I liked the central tower with a natural framing from this side and…
Is it not a good idea to keep away from a court of law?

For a closer view of the top of the tower, please check Workshop.
