Introduction

One of the most lively and charming cities of Rajasthan, Kota lies on the banks of Chambal river. Rightly blended between the medieval age  and modern industrialization, the  city of Kota has some magnificent collection of structures to boast upon. Back in the 12th century, when the region was conquered by the Hada Chieftain, Rao Deva, the foundation of this city was laid on. Ever since the ownership of Kota was shifted to ruler Madho Singh, the city has been considered as a true symbol of Rajput gallantry and culture.      

Besides being in the grips of the modern world, Kota has successfully managed to preserve a good amount of evidence of its glorious past and heritage. These make some of the best tourist attractions in the city to look for.

Attractions Around the City
