Bhavnagar was founded in 1724 by Bhavsinhji Gohil, the ruler of Bhavnagar State. The town was established on land given to him by his father and he ruled until 1764 when he died without an heir. He had named the city "Nagarnar" or "City of Victory". It is believed that during a hunting expedition, while chasing a deer into the forest near present-day Sarita Park area, his arrow struck against something hard and after digging there they found some copper plates inscribed with Jain religious texts which were dated back to 5th century AD. This discovery led them to build a temple dedicated to Neminath (Lord Mahaveer) at this place which later became famous as Nagarkot Temple (literal meaning: City of Victory).
