It was constructed in 1888 as residential quarters for the then Nizam. Even Sr. NTR had used this building till the end. Later, it fell in to disuse. KCR wanted to dismantle it, but he was restrained by the Hyderabad Heritage Building Society, that wanted to renovate it, albeit lack of funds. The roof of the top, first floor of the building has collapsed and wall are cracked to a dangerous extent.
