It was home to the royal family of Kota but now stands as the Welcome Heritage Hotel. Around 50 kms from Kota is the Darrah Wildlfe Sanctuary, the seat of wildlife variety such as spotted dear and the panther. The Dusshera Mela is an interesting feature of social life in Kota, during the months of September-October.
