Karnataka High Court (Behind the Bars)

IMG_8556
Karnataka High Court, in Bangalore, though the fence.

The picture was shot (from the moving car) in 2011 when I was visiting Bangalore. The red building, known as Attara Kacheri in front of the Karnataka State Secretariat (Vidhana Soudha), is a two-storied brick and stone building painted in red. The Graeco-Roman style of architecture is a structure of vast expanse with lonic porticoes at the centre and at the two ends of the elevation.  

The building constructed in year 1868 was supervised by Rao Bahadur Arcot Narayanaswami Mudaliar. I link the post for Run A Round Ranch's Good Fences

This bright red building would be hard to miss. I like the wrought iron fence as well.

The photo is clear, though it was taken from a moving car! You didn't take the pic of Vidhan Soudha?
