The Palace was built as a residence for the personal use of the Maharao and his family, who until then lived at the City Palace (Garh) - which is now run as a non-profit Museum by the Rao Madho Singh Museum Trust. The Royal Family still maintains a portion of the Palace for their personal usage.

Umed Bhawan Palace was built by HH Maharao Sir Umed Singh II of Kotah in 1902. The Palace is built in the Indo-Saracenic style of architecture – a style popularized in the late 19th century in India. Sir Samuel Swinton Jacob, a pioneer of the style was commissioned to build the modern palace. An entire new wing was later added in 1930, as a gift to MK Bhim Singh II.
