KOTA
Kotah on the eastern bank of the Chambal river, was the capital of the former Kotah State, and once belonged to the chiefs of the Hara sect of Chauhan Rajputs.

The town is on the broad gauge line of the Western Railway about 468 km. (291 miles) from Delhi, 917 km. (570 miles) from Bombay and 239 km. (149 miles) from Jaipur. It is 251 km. (156 miles) from Jaipur by road.

Inside the city, enclosed by massive bastioned walls, are the old palace and the museum. The latter, housed in the Saraswati Bhandar, has a valuable collection of several thousand manuscripts – some of them beautifully written and illustrated. The fine public gardens, the lake above it with a charming pavilion and the water-works on the Chambal are some other interesting sights in Kotah.


Chambal Project
It is, however, the Chambal River Project that has added to the importance of Kotah in recent years. The Chambal Valley Development Scheme is a multi-purpose project designed to benefit the States of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. It involves the construction of three dams with power stations, transmission lines, a barrage and a network of canals for irrigation to be completed in three stages. The Gandhi Sagar Dam in Madhya Pradesh and the barrage at Kotah are be completed during the first stage.
Work on the Kotah barrage was initiated in 1953 and is expected to be completed in 1962. It is located 0.8 km. (½ mile) upstream of Kotah city and is a composite dam built of earth, masonry and concrete. The barrage will be 600 m. (1,970 ft.) in length and 36 m. (120 ft.) in height. The canals taking off from it will irrigate 4.45 million hectares (11 million acres). The project is estimated to cost Rs. 255 million.


Around Kotah
There are several places of archaeological interest in the area around Kotah. The Bhind-Devara temples at Ramgarh are fine monuments of the eleventh century. At Atru, a place of considerable importance in the medieval Hindu period, are the ruins of buildings and temples. Similar ruins and a fort built during Muslim rule are to be found at Shergarh. Khanpur has an unusual underground Jain temple.

A place of great architectural interest is Jhalra Patan, 80 km. (50 miles) from Kotah, on the left bank of a stream known as Chandrabhaga. The principal remains of the medieval city of Chandravati sprawl along the northern bank of the stream and they include some fine temples. The largest and earliest of these is the temple of Sitaleswar Mahadeva, which has been decribed as “the most elegant specimen of columnar architecture.” The temple is said to belong to the seventh century. The temple of Sat Saheli is another impressive structure at Patan which has a small museum also.

Baroli
At Baroli, 48 km. (30 miles) from Kotah, is a group of seven ruined temples of the eighth century in a wild but picturesque spot. The one dedicated to Lord Siva is the most remarkable. It from, it is like the contemporary Orissan temples. But it has a pillared portico of great elegance, its roof reaching half way up to the temple. This and the rich sculptured designs make it unlike any other temple. Some 18 m. (60 ft.) high, its main beauty lies in its shape and proportions and the profuse and elegant ornamentation.

In front of the temple is a detached porch, called chaori, supported by a double row of sculptured columns. The shrines around the main temple are carved with attractive figures of Hindu deities and other motifs. The Shesh-Savi, an outstanding piece of Baroli sculpture–2.4 m. (8 ft.) in length, 0.6 m. (2 ft.) wide and 0.9 m. (3 ft.) in height – showing Vishnu, reclining on his couch formed by the coils of the hydra, with Laxmi in attendance, is now preserved in the Kotah museum.
