During the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857, part of the palace was damaged by the British, as the ruler and his wife gave whole heated support to the rebellion. After the mutiny, the building was occupied by an American NGO which used it as a club for recreation purposes. After independence, the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, a Central Drug Research Institute used it for several decades. The building needs restoration and the maintenance is adequate enough to keep the building in good shape.
