Introduction
Bundi and Kota were once a single principality ruled by the Hada Chauhans, who ruled Delhi and Ajmer. After the defeat of Prithvi Raj Chauhan by Sultan Mohammed Gori in 1193, the Chauhan nobles sought sanctuary in Mewar. They were welcomed and proved allies to the Rana.
Yet some warriors ventured on their own, overpowered the Meena and Bhil tribals of the Chambal valley and established the kingdom of Hadavati or Hadoti. Later two branches of the Hadas formed two separate states on either side of the Chambal. These were Kota and Bundi.
