On Darjeeling being opened up by the East India Company

purchased a property known as Rose Bank in 1860 and
constructed twoPalaces thereon, one for family members
and another for family guests. The architectural design chosen
was that of hill cottages but to much large scale than normal .
The family palace collapsed during the 1934 earthquake.
Subsequently, on the same site a new one was constructed
in an art-Deco style by Maharaja Uday Chand the great
grandson of the original founder. The second palaces for the
family guest survived the earthquake. The Bardawan family
resides in the two palaces till today.
