History of Kota describes the ancient heritage of the city. As a prominent landmark of Rajasthan state of India, Kota speaks of a very enticing past. The initial history of Kota states that the place was under the rule of a Chieftain called Rao Deva who belonged to the Hada community. In later years, Kota became the ruling ground of the leader of Bhil community. But in a historic battle this chieftain lost his dominion to the ruler of Bundi - Jait Singh.
 
The historic records of Rajasthan shows that in 12th century AD itself, Kota used to exist in India. Till the early periods of 17th century AD, Kota was ruled by the mighty king Rao Ratan Singh. In 1631, Kota was handed over to Rao Madho Singh who was the son of Rao Ratan Singh by the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan. This in turn transformed Kota into an independent state of Rajasthan. Maharao Bhim Singh had a significant contribution towards the historic enrichment of Kota who formed Mansabs of five thousand in the place. 
 
Since Kota had been dominated by several powerful dynasties of the bygone era, hence the cultural arena and the social scenario of the place reflect the rich imprints of those rulers. From the majestic palaces, the exotic fortresses to the splashing waterways and the magnificent interiors of the forts, Kota is a storehouse of incredible historic treasures.
 
From the 12th century AD to the present day, Kota has completed an eventful journey which had been ornamented with a host of prehistoric and historic events. As a dwelling place of a tribal community Kota was once an insignificant locational spot of Rajasthan. But with the gradual passage of time, the city of Kota emerged as a notable business zone of the state.
