Harish Murali ByExpress News ServiceCHENNAI: The century-old heritage building of the Egmore Metropolitan Magistrate Court is yet to open its doors to the public.
In 1916, three Municipal Magistrate Courts were established by the British in Egmore, Saidapet and George Town.
Grand arches, timber staircases and deep rosewood doors and windows give the Egmore Court a new look.
Since 2015, the Egmore Court was operating out of a separate premise in Allikulam market complex until a new modern multi-storeyed building was constructed for Rs 26 crore.
He said that the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court has also sought for the heritage premises to be utilised for the smooth functioning of the courts.
