Kota Barrage is the fourth construction in the Chambal Valley Project over River Chambal. It was built to store the waters stored by the three previous dams of the project Gandhi Sagar Dam, Jawahar Sagar Dam and Rana Pratap Sagar Dam, and then channelize it to the dry areas of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh for irrigation purposes via canals. At present, it helps in agriculture in around 20,000 acres of land. The 19 gate long barrage forms a bridge over River Chambal at Kota, on which people gather to enjoy the fascinating view of frothy white water being thrusting out in full force.
During the monsoon, when the lock gates are opened, it creates a magnificent view with its raging and gushing water. The water roars like the ocean and the sound of it resonate in the entire area. The rumble can be heard from a distance, and the pulse of it can be felt on the bridge as well. The bridge is quite crowded all around the year by onlookers, picnickers and those who halt by to have a look on their way to somewhere else.
