Presently the Ministry of Health, the College of Medicine was opened in 1926 to teach western medicine, largely through the endowments of wealthy local merchants. Its grand facade features twelve heavy fluted Doric columns with eleven enormous doors behind them. High up on the walls to the left and right of the colonnade are bas-reliefs that symbolise healing, while a sculptured Roman eagle surmounts the central doorway. In restoration work between 1985 and 1987, a grand staircase was added to the main lobby.

I am not sure how this got into TA to be reviewed. I chanced upon this building when I visited my brother-in-law at the General Hospital.
