Jam Saheb (Gujarati: જામ સાહેબ), is the title of the ruling prince of Nawanagar, now known as Jamnagar in Gujarat, an Indian princely state. The Jam Sahebs were from the Jam Jadeja clan,[1] who are a branch of Samma Rajput. The name of Jamnagar formerly known as Nawanagar was derived from the same root, while the word Jam itself means Sardar, or King, Saheb is an Arabic term which literally translates to "Owner" or "Proprietor". Further, Jam Rawalji was the first, Jam Saheb of Nawanagar, in 1540, when he founded the new city of Nawanagar in the region of Halar which was conquered by him & it consists of 999 villages, after migrating from Kutch.
