The premises of the High Commission of India in London, UK. The proposal for the building was put forward by the Indian High Commissioner Sir Atul Chatterjee in 1925, and the structure was designed by the British architects Herbert Baker and Gilbert Scott. It was inaugurated in 1930 by George V. The seven-storey structure is notable for the decorative details influenced by the Indian subcontinent, such as jaali work and Ashokan columns with elephant bases. The murals within the structure, including on the dome, were executed by a group of four young Indian artists, who trained in the UK and Italy before beginning their work on the building.
