    Commonly known as "Assembly Building", they are a crucial component of the government system, they usually comprise two houses, the Legislative Assembly and the Legislative Council. They contain the halls where Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs), Members of Legislative Council (MLCs) and the Chief Minister of each state convene to discuss issues pertaining to that state and also for passing new legislation/amendments to existing rules that effect that state.

    This is a picture compilation of exterior & interiors of some of the Assembly buildings of the various states of India - I haven't covered the buildings of all the states, only those which I think have some unique/good architecture. Most of these buildings were constructed in the colonial era, although there are also some modern examples built post-Independence. Going from North to South, here goes -

    Palace of Assembly -- Chandigarh (serves as Assembly for both the states of Haryana & Punjab)
    Built 1950s
