Enjoyed seeing the original parliament. The architecture is beautiful. It was under construction. Wish I could have gone inside.

Although the restoration was supposed to be done in Jan '16 in Oct '16 the building was still covered in scaffolding. It's probably worth a visit once that is done though so check!

The historic building has been under restoration for several years and closed to the public. Only an external viewing from the sidewalk is possible.

It looks terrible & can be put to better use...why is it taking this long to upgrade? It's been that way for a long time.

Its a shame that this historic building has been left in a state of disrepair for so many years. Not much to see as a steel sheet canopy covers the entire building pending refurbishment.
