Legislative Council Building


Description
The Legislative Council Building was built between 1898 and 1910 and was used as the Supreme Court. The Building has a grand look, mixing the architecture styles of China, the UK and Greece. Standing erect, on top of the building, is Themis, the Greek Goddess of Justice. The blindfolded Goddess has a sword in her left hand and a pair of scales in her right hand, representing the spirit of law - fair, strict and impartial.

The Legislative Council Building is the place which Legco members discuss the affairs of government and handle official business. It is also an important landmark in the Central District.
