Kota is situated on the eastern bank of the Chambal river. Kota is believed to have been founded by Jait Singh, the Grand son of Rao Deva, the chief of Bundi, by attacking and outsting some Bhils of the Koteah clan from the place, east to Chambal, which he christined as kotah (kota). Accroding to another view, Jait Singh captured Akelgarh in 1264 A.D. and occupied Kota, which was there after used as a purgana attached to the Jagir of Bundi. His descendants held it and the surrounding country for about five generations before being dispossessed by Rao Surajmal of Bundi in sixteenth century. It was held by Bundi till 1625, when the state came into existence, after the Mughal emperor Jhangir granted Kota along with its 360 townships to Madho Singh, who became its chief.

           Kota an amazing juxtaposition of the majestic medieval age and modern industrialisation. While its untouched wealth of impreseral forts, opulent places and splendid temples dating back over several centuries retain the past glory, the present day edifices and heavy industries have made it the industrial city of Rajasthan.
