Kota holidays

Kota is a fascinating mixture of medieval grandeur and modern industrialisation. An impressive fort stands like a sentinel over the present day Chambal Valley Project with its many dams-Kota Barrage, Gandhi Sagar, Rana Pratap Sagar and Jawahar Sagar. While an old palace, dating back to the time when Kota was part of the Hada Rajput fiefdom Harawati or Hadoti overlooks the Kota Barrage on the turbulent Chambal river. The Durbar Hall has mirror work, ebony and Ivory inlaid doors, and contains a wealth of Rajput miniatures of the Kota School. There are the royal cenotaphs, a haveli (stately home) with delicate frescoes, the Brijraj Bhawan Palace and an island palace-Jag Mandir-gracious remainders of a bygone age.
