Attara Kacheri

Attara Kacheri is one of the important attractions of Bangalore. This building is housing the High Court of Karnataka. Attara Kacheri is situated just opposite to the Vidhana Soudha, the impressive seat of the State Legislative Assembly.

Attara Kacheri dates back to the year 1867; the best part of this building is its Gothic Style of architecture and this two-storied building is built in the European classical style.

Attara kacheri was built during the rule of Tipu Sultan, ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore. The building was constructed under the supervision of Rao Bahadur Arcot Narayanaswamy Mudaliar and it was completed in the year 1868. It was earlier named as Old Public Offices and got its name of Attara Kacheri (meaning eighteen offices) when the eighteen departments in the general and revenue secretariat of the Mysore Government were shifted here from their congested premises in Tipu Sultan's summer palace.

There are few other attractions worth visiting near Attara Kacheri. They are the Visveswaraya Industrial and Technological Museum, Public Library, the Cubbon Park, Vidhana Soudha, the Vikasa Soudha, the Venkatappa Art Gallery and the Government Museum.
