Kota, previously called as Kotah, is a city located in the southeast of northern Indian state of Rajasthan.

With a population of over 1.2 million, it is the third most popular city of Rajasthan after Jaipur and Jodhpur, 46th most populous city of India and 53rd most populous urban agglomeration of India. It obeys as the administrative headquarters for Kota district and Kota division. Kota is a main coaching hub of the country for competitive examination preparations and has a number of engineering and medical coaching institutes.
The city of Kota was once the part of the former Rajput kingdom of Bundi. It became a different princely state in the 16th century. Apart from the various monuments that reflect the glory of the town, Kota is also known for its palaces and gardens. The city also include among 98 Indian cities for Smart Cities Mission initiated by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2015 and was listed at 67th place after results of first round were released following which top 20 cities were further selected for funding in the fast financial year. It is known among the youth of India for its coaching institutes for engineering and medical entrance examinations. Many students come to Kota to practise for the IIT JEE, NEET and many other competitive exams.
The history of the city dates back to the 12th century CE when Rao Deva, a Chauhan Rajput chieftain belonging to the Hada clan defeated the territory and founded Bundi and Hadoti. Later, in the early 17th century, during the rule of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir, the ruler of Bundi – Rao Ratan Singh, gave the smaller principality of Kota to his son, Madho Singh. Since then Kota became a hallmark of the Rajput gallantry and tradition.
Kota became an independent state in 1631 when Rao Madho Singh, the second son of Rao Ratan Singh of (Bundi) was made the ruler, by the Mughal Emperor Jahangir. Soon Kota outgrew its parent state to become bigger in area, richer in income and more powerful. Maharao Bhim Singh played a vital role in Kota’s history, having held a ‘Mansab’ of five thousand and being the first in his dynasty to have the title of Maharao. Zalim Singh, a diplomat, and statesman, emerged as other prominent figure of the state in the 18th century. Although initially being a general of Kota’s army, he rose to the regent of the empire after the king died leaving a minor on the throne. He remained a straight administrator of the state. In 1817, a deal of friendship was signed between him and the British on his condition of carving out part from the existing state for his descendants resulting in Jhalawar coming into existence in 1838. Kota was not involved in the old events of the Indian Rebellion of 1857. However when in October 1857 rebels killed the local British resident and his two sons, British forces responded by storming the city and, after some resistance, capturing it in March 1858.
In the 1940s, social activist Guru Radha Kishan organised trade union activities and campaigned opposite to the colonial government. He left Kota after the local administration came to know about the arrest warrant issued against him for his performance in Indian Independence activities.
