    This large impressive building was originally known as the Attara Kacheri when it was built in 1864. It is a two storeyed building with Corinthian columns in the Gothic Style of architecture, painted a rather intense red and is located at the entrance to Cubbon Park. The Public offices (Secretariat of the Government of Karnataka) were located here from 1868 to 1956, which were later moved to the Vidhana Soudha, opposite it. The building now accommodates the Karnataka High Court.

    The Karnataka High Court is the High Court of the Indian state of Karnataka. It is located in Bangalore, the capital city of Karnataka. The high court functions out of a red brick building known as Attara Kacheri. It is in front of Vidhana Soudha, which is the seat of the legislature of Karnataka.
    The high court is located in a building called as Attara Kacheri (meaning Eighteen offices). It is a two-storied building, red in colour and has been built in the neoclassical style. The construction of the building was supervised by Rao Bahadur Arcot Narayanaswamy Mudaliar and completed in the year 1868. It was earlier named as Old Public Offices and got its name of Attara Kacheri when the eighteen departments in the general and revenue secretariat of the Mysore Government were shifted here from their crowded premises in Tipu Sultan's summer palace. There was a proposal to demolish this building in the year 1982.[3] However, a public interest litigation (PIL) was filed in order to save this ancient building from getting demolished. This was the first PIL to be filed in the Karnataka High court and the case was heard in the very building that was supposed to be demolished.[4] In August 1984, the judges M. N. Venkatachaliah and Vittal Rao pronounced a judgement that stayed the demolition
