Bhadresar is the site of the ancient city of Bhadravati. Most of the ruins have been carried away, and even the foundations having been dug up for building stone.Bhadravati is mentioned in epic Mahabharata. It is mentioned in the works of Kantavijay, a Jain monk. The earliest source of information regarding this place is an inscription on the Ajitnath statue in Vasai Jain temple which records Samvat 622 (555 AD) which may be marking Samvat 1622 (1565 AD) also. The Vasai Jain Temple is said to have been founded in the 21st year of the Vairat era, and dedicated to Vasai by Siddhasen of the race of Hari. His successors were Mahasen, Narsen, Bhojraj, Vanraj, Sarangdev, Virasen, and Harisen, who lived in the time of Vikram (57 BC). Harisen had left his kingdom to his widow Lilavati. Lilavati was succeeded by his nephew Kirtidhara. Then came Dharnipal, Devdatt and Danjiraj. In the time of Dhaniraj, the country was plundered by many chiefs.
