The Allahabad High Court was one of the first high courts to be established in India. It has complete jurisdiction over the state of Uttar Pradesh. During the British Rule, this High court was first established in Agra and then later shifted to Allahabad due to reasons of administration.
The present building was made in the 1950s. The court is a massive complex built Indian-British architecture style. The well-kept lawns and fields in front of the High Court date to the British Raj and add to the natural beauty of the vast complex.
