H C N Wadiyar, the Maharaja of Coorg, has strongly objected  to opening of Balamandira inside the Mercara Palace without his permission.

In a letter to the Kodagu Deputy Commissioner, he claimed he is the owner of the palace as his ancestors did not transfer it to the then Government of Mysore or the Government of India.

He said Archaeological Survey of India officials had stated that the fort at Madikeri and two masonry elephants are being protected by the ASI, adding state government offices are still functioning in the palace.

He clarified the British government had not given any letter pertaining to the transfer of the palace to the government.

He said he wants to take over the palace soon.
