The protector of Vadodara City, Navnath Mahadev, for whom there are many famous stories told since ages, were established during the time of Rishi Vishwamitra and are of the same time as this generation. Not many prople are aware about Navnath Mahadev and different stories are heard regarding them. But all of the Navnath Mahadev were established by Rishi Vishwamitra and on his command for the protection of Vadodara City. Vadodara city's pioneer, Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad started the development of Navnath Mahadev during the period of 1850 - 1875, with the blessings of a Sadhu of the Nath community. He undertook this auspicious task to ensure the shining progress and welfare of our Vadodara city. This is the reason why Vadodara is also famous as "Sanskari Nagri" and "Shiv Nagri".
Siddhnath Mahadev is the symbol of prosperity in the human life. It aims for the overall prosperity and the greatness of the soul and as per Hindu Sanskar, ultimately becoming one with Lord Shiva through the soul. This is the motto of Siddhnath Mahadev.
