After Break fast drive to Morning visit Kota, along the Eastern bank of the Chambal river lies Kota – An amazing juxtaposition of the majestic medieval age and modern industrialization. While its untouched wealth of impressive forts, opulent palaces and splendid temples dating back over several centuries retain the past glory; the present day edifices and heavy industries have made it the industrial heartland of Rajasthan. The history of the city dates back to the 12th century A.D when the hada chieftain, Rao Deva, conquered the territory and founded Bundi and hadoti. Later, in the early 17th century AD during the reign of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir, the ruler of Bundi – Rao Ratan Singh gave the smaller principality of Kota to his son, Madho Singh. Soon, Kota became a hallmark of the Rajput gallantry and culture. The commanding fort stands overlooking the modern Chambal valley project with its many dams- Kota barrage, Gandhi Sagar, Rana Pratap Sagar and Jawahar Sagar. An old palace has a number of chambers including the durbar hall, ornate with beautiful mirror work and has ebony and ivory doors. Exquisite miniatures of the Kota school are housed within the hall. Other noteworthy edifices of the bygone era are the Brij Raj Bhawan palace, Jag Mandir and island palace, a splendid Havelis (mansion) with beautiful frescoes and the royal cenotaphs.
