I booked a tour online. The buildings were both wonderful in reality (seen many photos) and also a bit disappointing. It doesn't explain on the website that you can't go inside on Saturdays or Sundays, and often not on weekdays if the assembly is sitting...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.

The capitol complex is open only by appointment now. There are planned trips which you need to check. As said above for security reasons it is not open for access all the time.
