about city palace

The main symbol of those days in present Kota is the City Palace and Fort complex, in which layers of heritage were added by successive rulers. The fort was begun in 1264, after Koteya was slain. Each generation of rulers that came along built on, around and over what was already standing, resulting finally in a gargantuan monument. Along the fort’s inner battlements, public and private buildings, schools and homes have come up. Naya Darwaza, built circa 1900, looms ahead while the oldest gate, called Sailar Ghazi, dates back to 1264 and commemorates the spot where Koteya’s head was buried.

Among the parts open to the public are Hawa Mahal and Jaleb Chowk, Kunwarbade ka Mahal, Bada Mahal, where the king resided, and Raj Mahal, the throne room. Elaborate work characterises Sooraj Gokh, the Chattra Mahal, Zenana Mahal and Alsi Mahal. The richness of detail in the delicate fluted pillars, mirror inlays and the famous Kota murals with their hunting scenes make these a must-visit. Check out the Rao Madho Singh Museum for some fine examples of Kota painting, sculptures, photographs, arms and armour and other regal memorabilia.
