This photograph of the roofs of the Munsiff's and Sub- Court's buildings in the Palace complex, Madurai, Tamilnadu, is part of a collection entitled 'Photographic Views in Madurai ' (Madras, 1858) and was taken by Linnaeus Tripe in 1858. ''The dome at the right of the view, is that of the Moonsiff's Court...The room until recently occupied by the Subordinate Court, the roof of which is given in the view, is 120 feet long and 67 wide including a narrow gallery of each side...This hall was the palace theatre or Hall of Amusements...The building is now much gone to decay and in consequence of the recent fall of one end, the subordinate court has been removed to a part of the Great Hall of Audience, near the Sessions Court.''
