“Indo-Saracenic architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

Established under the British parliament’s Indian highcourt act 1861 during the British regime, the Court is supposedly the second largest judicial complex in the world. The British architects, for their ingenious Indo-Saracenic design, deserve every bit of credit for this architectural marvel. These buildings have survived a relentless attack by Germans during the First World War. The complex also houses the dilapidated old light house of Madras Port. Besides being the home of some landmark judgements, the court complex is a remarkable historic monument.
