Khimsar Fort, Kota Rajasthan
The city is located on the east bank of Chambal River,
Rajasthan`s only perennial river. Kota came out of the shadows of
Bundi and became prominent in the 17th century when it was recognised
as a separate state. Today, Kota is recognised as a major army
headquarter and a prime industrial centre of Rajasthan. It has one of
Asia`s largest fertiliser plants.
While some associate the place with Kota Doria Saris, others link it with Kotah School of miniature paintings. Made of cotton or silk, and often with delicate golden thread designs, the saris are woven in the nearby village of Kethun. The Kota paintings are often a vivid and detailed portrayal of hunting expeditions that were launched in the once thickly wooded forests around the place.
