Abstract

This monumental civic building was constructed under the direction of the British Commissioner L.B. Bowring to serve as the secretariat of the Mysore state government. It functioned in this capacity until 1956, when a new secretariat, the Vidhana Soudha, was completed. Adapted to become the High Court building, it is designed in the classical Graeco-Roman style with expansive arcades punctuated with Ionic porticos at the center and ends.
