The New Law Courts in Rangoon. This impressive building isn’t far from the older High Court offices. Its colonnaded exterior was design to keep the sun from penetrating too far into the offices during the heat of the Burmese day. It’s a very solid and striking building rather similar to the Fullerton Hotel (once a Post Office) in Singapore. You can find a plaque dedicating the building to the former British governor of Burma, Sir Harcourt Butler, who was rather popular locally.
