Hara Chauhans of Bundi Kota

Once the Chauhans of Delhi were defeated by Mohammed Ghori (1192) the clan dispersed. Most of them sought sanctuary with Mewar and fought valiantly for the defence of Chittor. But Rao Deva, belonging to a branch of this clan launched out on his own. He defeated the Mina and Bhil tribals of the Bundi-Kotah area on both sides of the Chambal river and established an independent kingdom. This state was known as Hadavati.

In 1625 two branches of this family separated accepting the river Chambal as a natural boundary and the separate states of Bundi and Kotah came into being. Both princes acknowledged the overlordship of Mewar and came to the aid of Chittor. Thereafter they made separate treaties with Moghul power which operated till the states came under the British. Bundi was known for its school of miniature painting and both Bundi and Kotah are famous for the weaving of gossamer-fine textiles.

Since independence the harnessing of the Chambal waters and the large scale development of the Chambal Valley Project has led to Kotah becoming a growing industrial centre.
