Kota is the city of industries.

Due to my travelling in Kota for some work regarding my job I am not able to visit so many places in Kota. But the Seven wonders Park and the Garadia Mahadev is the beauty of Kota. Must go to Garadia Mahadev. We can also visit the different parks and the museum in Kota. Now Kota is going to become a Smart city of Rajasthan.
