Muhammad Begada resolved to establish a new capital city of Gujarat in 1484 AD at this site. The name of the town was changed to Muhammadabad. The construction of the town took 23 years. During these years, a number of town squares, royal gardens, bazaars and mosques were constructed in the city. Subsequently, the city emerged as one of the major centers of trade and commerce.
