Impact of colonization brought strong impositions also in terms of built interventions replacing the old and the traditional in one stroke. Not particularly interested in continuity, the established rulers did buildings with a determination to introduce western methods and imagery. This is evident from an example of Weillington Crescent (later christened Mahatma Gandhi chowk) (early 20th century) in Jamnagar. The sources are certainly western, intentions noble but subjective and solutions imposed rather than adjusted, accommodated or agreed through the needs and desire of inhabitants. The building with hitherto unknown scales, materials and techniques hitherto unknown and imagery of governance by foreigners is what comes out as expression. Certainly a breakaway from traditions.
