Crawford Hall and Garden Park

Corinthian grand-columns, a heavy multiple-moulded entablature and a wide-spanned plaster-relief picture of Goddess Saraswati distinguish the central block of this 1947-vintage building. (The aureole-like crest, made unsightly by the clumsily propped up university-logo behind it, with its accompanying merlones and piered finials, has been reproduced in some of the gable-compositions of the Vidhana Soudha at Bangalore). Flanking wings at two levels, have contrasting details of balustrade and piered parapets, Roman arches and Tuscan double-columns. The edifice commands an appropriately vast foreground.
