Allahabad High Court, located in Allahabad
was designed by Frank Lishman. The foundation of the building was laid in
1911 by Chief justice, Sir John Staley. It was finally completed in 1916
and opened by Viceroy Lord Chelmsford.
This structure is subtly adapted to the climate as is evident from the double roofing, made with Allahabad Tiles on top, to beat the summer heat. Conceived in a grand fashion, it has a domed pedimented centre, arcaded wings, stone balustrades and engrailed arches. It reflects a beautiful synthesis of Eastern and Western architectural styles.
