Kota is well-known for education and it’s an industrial city. Kota is situated close to Chambal river, and the city was once the part of the erstwhile Rajput kingdom of Bundi. The Mathuradheesh Temple in Kota belongs to Pushti Marg, a Vaishnava sect founded by Shri Vallabhacharya. The idol of Krishna housed here was brought from the Karnaval village near Mathura.
