Kota State, also known as Kotah State, was a state in India, centered on the city of Kota, now located in Rajasthan State of the Indian Union.

The town of Kota was once the part of the erstwhile Rajput kingdom of Bundi. It became a separate princely state in the 17th century.

History

In 1631 Kota state seceded from Bundi. Between 18 Jun 1707 and 8 Sep 1713 it was reunited with Bundi State.

On 26 Dec 1817 Kota state became a British protectorate. It was ruled by Rajputs of the Chauhan dynasty and the Hada clan who were granted a hereditary salute of 17 guns by the British.[1]
