MUMBAI: The state government has planned a major makeover for the palace in which the last king of Burma, King Theba(w), stayed during the latter half of his life. The historic palace is situated in the heart of Ratnagiri. The palace was set up by the British to house King Theba(w) and his family, who were exiled after the British conquered Burma (now Myanmar). The department of archaeology and museums has decided to transform the palace, which was declared a state-protected monument in June 2000, into a museum. full-fledged and one of its kind museum inside the palace, which was declared a state protected monument in June 2000. The department has the custody of the palace.

King Theba(w), who moved into the palace on November 13, 1910, spent the rest of his life in exile and died in the palace at Ratnagiri. . He even died inside the Palace.

None of his family members are alive now. The palace was later converted into the official residence of the collector in the post-independence period. In 1994, the Myanmar government wrote to the Centre and the state government requesting proper conservation of the historic monument.

The department was allotted a portion of the palace after the government declared it a protected monument. A Mumbai University wing functioned from the remaining portion. This portion was handed over to the department two years ago.

The department has now initiated restoration work.

The museum is expected to house exhibits on Maratha, European and Moghul warships, ancient sculptures, and local Konkani art.

Bhalchandra Kulkarni, curator, regional museums, said, “Separate galleries will be set up for each category.” Kulkarni added that the warships will be wooden replicas of the actual ships, built by artists from Kolhapur. He further said that his team was in touch with artists from Kolhapur to build the replicas. “We have gone through historical records and pre-independence era books to collect pictures and data about the ships.”
Three rooms (galleries) will be dedicated to warships. “There will be 25 of them in all, including eight Maratha shops, ten European ones, two from the Moghul era. The rest would be replicas of boats and ships used by the local fishermen,” Kulkarni said.

A separate gallery will be dedicated for the memoirs of King Theba(w). The government plans to use the museum to promote local art as well. Kulkarni said that a portion in the palace will be dedicated for exhibits depicting local painting talent. Ancient sculptures will be put on display too. Stuffed skin of rare dead animals from the local area will be displayed in another portion of the museum.
The palace campus is spread across 27 acres.
