Madras High Court Tours

Inaugurated in July of 1892, the Madras High Court is one of only three (along with Mumbai and Kolkata) in modern India that was established by royal charter under Queen Victoria. Architecturally, it’s one of the city’s most stunning examples of the Indo-Saracenic aesthetic, displaying Moorish, European, Islamic and Hindu elements in its red sandstone facade.

The domes, minarets and other decorative elements of the building’s exterior are matched in grandeur within, where guided tours take visitors through the various court rooms, many appointed with stained glass windows and exquisite works of art.

An interesting note: The Madras High Court is one of the few buildings in India to have been damaged by a German attack during the early years of World War I.

Practical Info

The Madras High Court is open Monday through Saturday and is located just north of Fort St. George.
