Shaukat Mahal and Sadar Manzil, an architectural curiosity, is a mixture of styles in occidental idioms and sets it apart from the predominantly Islamic architecture of the area. It was designed by a Frenchman, said to be a descendant of an offshoot of the Bourbon kings of France. Post- renaissance and Gothic styles are combined to charming effect here.
The immaterial told me that I was indeed an occidental, a right-thinking Christian who believes in the ‘Resurrection of the flesh’. A whole phenomenology then appeared, but a phenomenology without ideas, or rather without any of the systems of official conventions. What appeared was distinct from form and became Immediacy. ‘The mark of the immediate’ – that was what I needed.yves klein
