Lonely Planet review
Another of Kolkata’s greatest architectural triumphs, the High Court building was built between 1864 and 1872, loosely modelled on the medieval Cloth Hall in Ypres (Flanders). The grand Gothic exterior is best viewed from the south. To look around its Kafkaesque interior replete with ribbon-tied paper bundles, ask for a gate pass at the eastern entrance security desk.
