The Building in view is situated at near Sindh Assembly and it is a Art of Architect Engineering in Pakistan by the British Government in 1894 or near. I suggest the foreigners and history lovers to visit this building and appriciate the Historical building of High Court of Sindh.

The high ceilings, corridors, cross ventilation, air movement, acoustics all worth a study for young architects to create public buildings in low resource settings even today.

The main building was constructed about 73 years ago. Building materials are of best quality even it difficult if not possible to find such quality of stone used for walls. Sizes of hall and height of halls are such that it ensure good ventilation and resulted in creating fresh & soothing environment. This building worth to visit.

Though during working hours visitors can have parking issues, but that is the time to visit as you get to see the actual working of the court. Beautiful architecture of the main building (there is an annex building which is a later addition) and the constant breeze in the verandah keeps you cool even during the humid month of May.
