  The first buildings were factories but later courts, schools, municipal
  halls and dak bungalows came up, which were ordinary structures built by
  garrison engineers.
  A deeper concern with architecture was exhibited in churches and other
  public buildings. Churches were built in great style. Based on London
  prototypes, several churches evolved with variations as highly original
  works. The earliest example is the St. Mary’s Church in Fort St. George in
  Chennai.
  Most of the buildings were adaptations of the buildings designed by
  leading British architects of that time.
• For instance, the Church of St. John at Calcutta was built in 1787 inspired
  by St. Stephens Church at Walbrooks;
• the Government House in Calcutta was built by Capt. Charles Wyatt
  modelled on the Kedleston Hall of Derbyshire;
• the Indian Government Mint in Calcutta is a half-scale replica of the
  Temple of Minerva at Athens; and
• the Pachaiyappa’s Hall in Chennai was modelled on the Athenium Temple
  of Theseus.
  Unlike Europe, however, these buildings were built mostly of brick and
  stuccoed with lime or chunam, sometimes “facades” incised to look like
  stones. Some later buildings were, however, built with stones.
  Neo-Gothic architecture flourished in different parts of India under the
  British, inspired by the Houses of Parliament in London. Colonel Thomas
  Cowper built the town hall in Bombay during 1820 to 1835.
  Governor Sir Bartle Frere tried to give a truly imperial ambience to the
  city of Bombay. During his reign the old town walls were broken down
  and the Gateway of India was built in the Gothic style of architecture.
• The Secretariat, University Library, Rajabai Tower, Telegraph Office and
  the Victoria Terminus all followed the Victorian Gothic style, similar to
  buildings in London.
• Undoubtedly, the Victoria Terminus, designed by the architect Frederick
  Willaim Stevens modelled on the St. Pancras Station, is the finest example
  of Gothic architecture with a subtle hint of the Indo-Saracenic motifs.
• Stevens also designed other buildings like the Churchgate Terminus and
  the Municipal Building opposite     the Victoria Terminus.
