The Taragarh Fort in Kota was built in 1345 and was the center of a kingdom in Rajasthan. The entrance to the Taragarh Fort, which is about 39 km from Kota, is by a sharply sloping road, which leads to the impressive gateway. The gateway is topped with carvings of proudly rearing elephants. Within the fort there are large reservoirs where water was stored in case of a siege, when all the townsfolk took shelter within the walls of the fort. These reservoirs are carved out of the rocky base of the fort. On the largest rampart of the fort is the Bhim Burj, a large and legendary cannon. The view of Kota town from Taragarh Fort is spectacular, particularly at twilight and just after sunset. This large fort is an interesting place to spend a day, wandering around its ruins and defensive structures.
