Another great way to spend your day is to visit the Baroli Temples located at 45 Kms away from the city. The cluster of temples(8 temples; another one is located a kilometre away). Visit the temples to marvel the architecture of the bygone era.
Bundi is an entire world in itself. This town located 40 Kms from Kota still maintains it's rustic charm. Away from the crowds of tourists make sure to take a stroll around this town. If you don't believe me, probably take Rudyard Kipling's words for the palace of Bundi:
‘Jaipur Palace may be called the Versailles of India … Jodhpur’s House of strife, gray towers on red rock, is the work of giants, but the Palace of Bundi, even in broad daylight, is such a palace as men build for themselves in uneasy dreams – the work of goblins rather than of men.’

Amar Punjabi Dhaba:
It's crazy to see a Punjabi food joint so crowded in Rajasthan. Be ready to wait for your turn as I have never seen this place without crowds.

Jodhpur Sweets :
A trip to Rajasthan would be incomplete without sinking your teeth into the gorgeous kachoris.(I say gorgeous because kachoris in Kota are unlike any you've eaten in any part of India)

Also, try your share of Dal bafflas and Dal batti churma. Do not forget to have poha for breakfast. Do it like the locals do.
