Most notably of Gothic architectures that most of us know today may be the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, Duomo di Milano, Notre Dame de Paris, and the York minister. This summer, Barjis wants to introduce to you the Mohatta Palace, a Western fused, Indo-Gothic or Indo-Saracenic architecture that was built in the early 20th century. This beautiful building is situated in Karachi, the capital of the province of Sindh and the largest city in Pakistan. Located on the coast of the Arabian Sea, the place boasts itself of the beautiful sea view from the top floor. Rumors had it that an affluent ship chandler and trader called Shivratan built the palace to rescue his wife from dying. His architect played with different colors, using locally sourced yellow Gizri stone to give the palace a pleasant mood and pink stone from Jodhpur to add to the building a sense of tenderness and femininity. The Mohatta Palace Museum is currently exhibiting A Flower from Every Meadow: Design and Innovation in Pakistan’s Dress Traditions, curated by Nasreen Askari. According to Herald magazine, it is one of the most spiritually uplifting exhibitions. At the end of the day, the exhibition is meant to remind us that “the past is still present, still relevant, still a strong inspiration [for us] to repossess and author our own cultural narrative.”
