Previously, Kota was part of Bundi State, but it later became a larger state. What is reminiscent of its glorious past is the intact richness of its impressive forts, sumptuous palaces and temples dating back centuries. These temples were built by the chief Hada Rao Deva. The state of Kota is reflected in the form of a beautiful collection of stone idols (murties) in the Raj Mahal, embellished with gold-tinted glass work on the walls, silver mirror work on the ceilings and the wonderful murals.
Other buildings of the bygone era are represented in the Brij Raj Bhawan palace, Jaguar Mandir, a palace on the island and a magnificent haveli (mansion) with beautiful frescoes and royal cenotaphs. The Kota is now well known for its famous dams and saris, woven into the villages of Kaithoon town. They are made of cotton and silk in an assortment of delicate golden colors and threads. The miniatures depict hunting scenes from the forest that have attracted many aristocracy and royalty to engage with passion in this sport at the heart of the magic along the Chambal River.
If one night stay is scheduled in Kota, then it will be sightseeing of Kota only but in case of two nights stay, Bundi sightseeing can also be included on the chart.
