It's actually Czech - or at least also Czech, I know nothing of Hungarian or Indian surnames. It means mountain in Czech.P.S. Maybe the Hungarian part of its origin is actually Slovakian - Slovakia was for a long time part of Hungary. In that case it's all the same as the Czech origin.

You'll find a few proposals for the origin of Hora at http://www.ancestry.com/facts/hora-family-history.ashx. The name is also Hungarian, as you mention, but I have no information on it.
