Attara Kacheri

This two-storey building, whose construction dates back to 1867, was completed under the reign of Tipu Sultan and is currently home to the Karnataka high court. There is an interesting tale that goes behind the construction of this building. Under Tipu Sultan’s regime, the offices under the purview of the Revenue and General Secretariat expanded considerably. With no place available inside the palace, the offices were shifted to a new location. The newly constructed building was called Atta Kacheri, which meant 18 departments. Built in the European classical style, this red building boasts of its Gothic style of architecture. The Government Museum here offers an insight into history through its exotic treasure trove of coins, paintings and scriptures. Entry Price: Free Opening Timings: 10: 00 to 17:00 from Mondays to Saturdays
