Modern

After the Battle of Buxar the British took control over Arrah. Arrah was one of the centres of revolt in 1857.
 
During the Indian rebellion of 1857, a group of 18 British civilians and 50 Indian soldiers was besieged in the Little House at Arrah, by a band of 2500–3000 armed soldiers and around 8000 others under the command of 80-year-old Veer Kunwar Singh, the Zamindar of adjacent Jagdishpur. A British regiment, dispatched to their assistance from Danapur, was repulsed,[12] but the group withstood the siege for eight days until they were relieved by other East India Company troops.
