King Mulraj Solanki who ruled over North Gujarat, decided to build a Rudra Mahalaya in Siddhpur and invited 1037 holy Brahmins for the same. Among those Brahmins were Gautami sect Brahmins who were carrying the deity of their Goddess in a caravan along with them. The caravan suddenly stopped in this city named Pushpawati which was located nearby Siddhpur and Gautami Brahmins established her in this city. The Goddess came to be known by the name of Shaktambika. The king donated the whole city to the Gautami Brahmins to live there along with their Goddess.
