TRAVEL IN KOTA SHOW MAP

In 1193 A.D. when Prithviraj Chauhan was overpowered by Sultan Mohammed Ghauri, some Chauhan nobles seeked refuse in Mewar and became associated to the Rana while other young warriors move towards the Chambal valley and established their own kingdom of Hadoti. Later, two branches of Hadas formed two states of Kota and Bundi on the both sides of the river Chambal.

Kota is a wonderful amalgamation of grand medieval age and todays industrialization. The town has few traces of its past evident even today. The fort on the river Chambal is the main tourist pull. The rich anthology of art and artefacts and some ornately painted chambers are archived in the museum.

Previously Kota was a part of Bundi state, but later it became a separate state and grew bigger. The town has inspiring forts, luxurious palaces and temples dating back over several centuries. The Kota state is presented in the form of a beautiful compilation of Stone images (murties) in the Raj Mahal, inflated  with gold marked glass work on the walls, the silver mirror work on ceilings and the marvellous wall paintings.
