    Located in front of the Mahabandoola park, this big red brick construction known also as the Supreme Court, was built in 1911 by architect James Randsome, and was the higest legal authority in the country until 2006 when the court was moved by the military governement to Naypydaw. Actually is under a restoration work.

    as a colonial/old buildings lover, i was so happy to wander along the old quarter of yangon. one among them is central law court. with the union of myanmar's flag at the top, this building became one of the landmarks in the city. impressive that the old bell still working and if you ask 'how old this building is?' you can traced down by its fern surrounded the bricks.

    This is another of those central Yangon (Rangoon) buildings that is worth a look in passing for its (slightly worn) colonial architectural style. Heaven forbid that you would actually end up inside it. I would love to tell you more about the architecture, but my best efforts on the Internet have so far drawn a blank. If anyone can assist, please VT mail me, and I'll gladly update the tip, along with appropriate credits.
