After Sultan Mahmud Badadruddin II was captured and exiled, the Dutch plundered and wrecked buildings in Palembang, including the Keraton Kuto Lamo. In 1823, the Dutch began to reconstruct buildings upon the ruins.

At the former Keraton Kuto Lamo, a residence was built for the Kingdom of Netherland’s commissary in Palembang, Yohan Isaac van Sevenhoven.  On 1842 the building was completed and was locally popular as the snail house (Rumah Siput).

History still held a grip on this building when the Japanese arrived in the 1940’s. With the 2nd World War raging in the Pacific, the Japanese utilized this historical building as their military base.
