Court of Final Appeal - A symbol of order and fairness. A neoclassical architecture.

In Hong Kong, magnificent and elegant historic buildings are literally everywhere. And came to Central, Hong Kong this time, just to introduce the famous historical buildings here. Without further ado, let's go and have a look right now.

The "Court of Final Appeal" building in Central, Hong Kong is a two-storey building. The whole building is built in a neoclassical architectural style, and in order to adapt to the tropical climate of Asia, architectural elements such as open corridors are also added to adjust the temperature.

All doors and windows of the building are arranged in an orderly manner and are installed symmetrically between each stone pillar, symbolizing order and fairness. On the top of the building stands the statue of "Goddess of Justice Themis". Her right hand holds a scale that represents justice, and the left hand holds a sword that symbolizes power. Blindfolded eyes represent selflessness. It symbolizes the spirit of impartiality and fairness and strictness of the law.

The "Court of Final Appeal" building has a history of more than hundred years and has been used for various purposes in the past. Except during the Second World War, it was requisitioned as the headquarters of the Japanese military police. At the beginning of its construction, it was always used as the "Supreme Court" building, where all important hearings in the past were held. Until the early 1980s, it was converted into the building of the "Legislative Council". After some time, the "Legislative Council" moved to another address, and the building was renovated and eventually became the "Court of Final Appeal" building today.

Apart from being a declared monument in Hong Kong, the "Court of Final Appeal" building has also become a famous landmark in this area with its classical and refined appearance. Since the "Court of Final Appeal" building is not open to the general public, most visitors will choose to watch or take pictures at the periphery.

If you also want to come here, it is recommended to take the MTR to the Central Station and leave at the Exit K. From the exit of the station, there is the Statue Square, and the Court of Final Appeal Building is next to the Statue Square, which is easy to see.
