The sharp contrast and
diversity of Rajasthan is, at times, unnerving. A
mere 14 miles separate Bundi
and Kota... yet they seem to be two different
worlds. While we had been transported back to the
medieval times in Bundi
we were brought back to the present by Kota.
One of Rajasthan's premier industrial centres,
Kotah (as it was known earlier) has lost some of its
olden-day character. Yet, the traces of its glorious
past can be seen in the City Palace and Fort
overlooking the mighty Chambal river, Jag Mandir (a
poor man's Lake Palace of
and Brij Vilas Palace Gardens.
