Faridpur District Judge Court, 1889

Type: Districts
Contributed By: Nayeem


The (Court) building was built during 1885-1886, but The Faridpur “District Judge Court” was established during the 1889 by the British rulers to provide the justice for local people. This medium sized court building is an attractive one, and not that much rush inside of it. The structure of the building is really simple, but which period it was built, you can easily read from its structure. Inside the court building, there are several court rooms. One room usually stays empty, probably at break time specially, and others are conducted judgments by the judges.

It is may not be permitted to visit the second floor of the court building. Apart from the court rooms, others are occupied by the stuffs of the judge court who usually do typing related jobs, or handling public affairs. The court building has a “foot over” that connects to another building at the other side of the road. That building is called “Advocate’s Library”, where the advocates used to talk with their clients, or do some study about their cases. My god, this room has hell lot of crowds. Many men have many problems, and everyone needs solution.
