In 1947, Raja Rajinder Singh of Neemrana moved down to Vijay Bagh as the façade of his Fort-Palace crumbled and its ramparts began to give way. For forty years he tried to rid himself of his liability but there were no takers.
Finally, in 1986, the ruins were acquired for restoration. In 1991 Neemrana Fort - Palace opened its doors with the nobility of its façade raised, and just 15 liveable rooms. In 2000 Neemrana won the Intach-Satte award for restoration & tourism for ‘being the foremost example of how we can pick architectural treasures from the national dustbin and turn them around... Neemrana has become synonymous with ‘restoration for re-use.’ In 2004, Neemrana was nominated for the Aga Khan Award.
