    Mumbai High Court
    2 more images

    On the fringes of what was once the walled Fort of Mumbai, stands the High Court, another hauntingly beautiful (some say haunted!) structure, in brooding black stone. Opposite it lies the Oval Maidan, formerly a large Bowling Green where English memsahibs came to "take in the air." Today, it is an important lung in a congested city, where aspiring young cricketers practice their paces under the watchful eye of the High Court and the Mumbai University.

    Built in 1878, the imposing Germanic Gothic Revival edifice overlooking Oval Maidan is the Bombay High Court. It was designed by the British architect John Augustus Fuller and continues to be one of the largest public buildings in the city. It also remains called the "Bombay" High Court, despite the change in the official name of the city to Mumbai.
