During the 4-5th A.D a large number of people settled in this part. They were Gurjara people from Iran.Around the 10th century, under Solanki rulers, the city was at the zenith of fame and glory. The ruler Siddhraj Jaisingh built his capital at Siddhpur, thus the name Siddhpur which literally means Siddhraj's town.
