Visiting Kota?

Historically a city of strategic importance, Kota still boasts a huge army base but its contemporary guise is that of a modren industrial center. The revitalising  Chambal river, populated by crocrodilea and piled by boats of all sizes, is the only permanant river of the state. Kota is famous for saries which are woven with a golden thread in the nearby village of Kaithoon. Accomodation and dining in Kota is pretty lacklusture, so consider  it as a daytrip from Bundi or a place to spend a few hours when making a transport connection.
