Panch mahal is a Hindi or Gujarati word derived from Panch ("five") and Mahal ("palace"). It was established in the 7th century (647) in the territory of King Vanraj Chavda of Chavda dynasty. In the 13th century, Chauhans acquired the city from Muslim rulers under Alauddin Khilji. Their rule continued until 1484, when Sultan Mahmud Begada of Gujarat captured the city.
