Built around 1730, the palace soon became the seat of power of the Marava Kings, a lineage who were deeply influenced by both the Dravidian too as Rajputana cultures.

The palace fell into ruins for the duration of the reign of Rajah Doraisingh Thevar (1898-1941), who transferred his lodgings in the Sivaganga Palace towards the European Bungalow, which was located on the Madurai Road.
