Magistrates’ Court

Though dwarfed by bigger buildings, The George Town Magistrates Court Building on First Line Bach (Rajaji Salai) is an interesting structure.

The ornamental inlaid tiles stand out. They are in fairly good condition making you wonder if they were redone recently.

As Rina Kamath writes in her book, “Chennai, Kanchipuram and Mamallapuram”, the building is ” a structure whose riotous ornamentation might startle those who expect sobriety in a seat of justice”.
