If anyone wants to learn about “Kota Chakra” in astrology they have to refer to the book “Astrological Applications of Kota Chakra and Sanghatta Chakra” Authored by Shri K.K.Joshi. As per my knowledge it is the only book available on Kota Chakra.

Kota Chakra is also known as Durga Chakra, durga means Fort. In olden days, this chakra used to find the chances of victory or defeat of kings in wars.

In modern days, this chakra can be used to identify period of arista such as ill health, accidents, physical and mental distress death etc.

How to Construct Kota Chakra

  1. Draw three squares one inside the other. This is the kota or Fort
  2. The fort has diagonals and cross. Diagonals are the entry path and cross is exit path.
  3. Write the names of 28 nakshatras starting from the janma nakshatra and from north east corner along with diagonal and cross in serial order.
  4. The Kota Chakra is divided into four segments (i) Stambha or pillars (ii) Madhya or inner portion (iii) Prakara or boundary and (iv) Baahya or outer portion.
  5. Kota Swami or King: Kota Swami is the lord of the sign occupied by Moon at the time of the birth.
  6. Kota Paala or Protector: There is a procedure to find kota paala with the help of “Avakahada Chakra” or simply use the below table:
