High Court of India & Nearby, Kolkata, India

The High Court of India is arguably the most spectacular arhitectural gem in Kolkata.  It was built in 1872 in Gothic style by Walter Granville, on the model of the belfry at Yepers in Belgium.  It had to be down-scaled as the marshland would not support such a structure.
