The Capitol complex is the visible sign of the of the new city created from scratch in the 1950’s. The raw architecture of the city is clearly demonstrated in the Capitol buildings. Must for students of architecture and Corbusier fans.

I'm sorry but there is nothing beautiful about these grotesque structures; it's the same architectural design that blights a lot of London, Geneva & Zurich. At least they are getting rid of it in London. When you see the beauty of ancient designs (& there...More

Wow, it is an architectural marvel. The building is built more than 50 years ago. The complex consists of High Court, Assembly and Open hand monument. The whole place is well maintained. The complex is neat and tidy. A must visit place.
