The Umed Singh Fort is located on the Station road, near the Nehru Park, in the city of Kota. The fort was originally built by Maharaja Umed Singh II, who ruled the city of Kota in the early 1900’s. He had built this fort as he wanted to stay in a modern palace for his personal usage.
The palace was built in an Indo- Saracenic style of architecture and one can clearly see a blend of Victorian and Rajput architecture. One has to see the lush green and well maintained lawns with scenic ceilings, the marble corridors, several trophies from the golden era, and the royal heirlooms. The palace had 32 rooms all equipped with modern amenities. Today the Umed Singh Fort has been converted into a heritage hotel and is visited by several tourists as they visit the beautiful city of Kota, in Rajasthan.
