If you’re a local & reading this post, we hope you’ll find something you don’t already know!
- Kishore Sagar Talab (KST)
Situated in the heart of Kota City, this beautiful artificial lake has become a major attraction for tourists visiting Kota. Side by the lake, you can witness various activities in the morning and a light show at night.
In the center of the lake is Jagmandir which is another remarkable structure. The view from here during sunset is simply mesmerizing as you’d see the Jagmandir, the Seven Wonders in a park and Kota Thermal and the sun ( of course ) in one single frame!
It offers people having historical interests and those looking for recreation, a place to indulge and spend some blissful moments away from maddening crowd and rowdy traffic.
2. Seven Wonders Park
This wonderful park is situated just across the beautiful Kishore Sagar Talab and provides a captivating view of the lake.
The park displays the immaculately designed miniatures of all the seven wonders of the world which include the Taj Mahal, the Great Pyramid, the Eiffel Tower, the Leaning Tower, Christ the Redeemer of Brazil, the Colosseum, and the Statue of Liberty.
Strolling in this park is always a pleasant experience and that’s what we recommend to everyone!

Kota Hanging Bridge is another astounding landmark of the city. Set across the magnificent chambal river, the 6-lane cable-stayed bridge is 30m wide, 1.5 km long and 125 metres high with the longest span at 350.5 metres, that is 1,150 feet.
Standing firm on the outskirts of the city, this architectural wonder looks absolutely amazing as one drives through it.
