Hadoti (हाड़ौती) (also known as Hadauti, Hadaoli, or Hadavati. It was called Bundi Kingdom before several states separated), is a region of Rajasthan state in western India. The bigest cities are Bundi and Kota.

It includes the districts of Bundi, Baran, Jhalawar and Kota, and is bounded on the west by the Mewar, on the northwest by Ajmer regions of Rajasthan, and on the south by the Malwa, on the east by the Gird regions of Madhya Pradesh state.

Geography

History

Hadoti region of Rajasthan

The name of the region is derived from the Hada Rajputs, a branch of the great Chauhan Rajput clan. The Hadas settled in the region in the 12th century and dominated the area for several centuries thereafter. Hada Rao Deva conquered Bundi in 1241 and nearby Kota in 1264. At one time, the Hada-ruled state of Bundi encompassed the present-day districts of Baran, Bundi, Kota, and Jhalawar.

The importance of Bundi state diminished over the years: as early as in 1579, it was deprived of the region which became a separate Kota state; the alienated area included all of what later became a separate Jhalawar state in 1838. However, Bundi state did remain an independent entity, if only nominally, up to and during the British Raj.

After the independence of India in 1947, it became part of the Dominion of India (later the Union of India).
