Very beautiful building, I would of loved to be able to take some more pictures of it but there were loads of tour buses parked outside so it was hard to get a decent picture of the building.

Inspired by Moorish design and built by British colonial power, this building is a must see. However sadly it is not open to the public.

At night, the building is an entirely different building than during the day. That is when I went to take my own photos.
