Origin of the name of the district: The Mahendergarh town was previously known as Kanaud which took its name from the Kanaudia group of Brahmans. It was founded by Malik Mahdud Khan, a servant of Babur. There is a fort at Mahendergarh which was built by Maratha Ruler, Tantia Tope during the 17th century. This fort was named as Mahendergarh in 1861 by Narinder Singh, the ruler of the erstwhile princely state of Patiala, in honor of his son, Mohinder Singh and consequently the town came to be known as Mahendergarh. The name of Narnaul Nizamat was changed to "Mohindergarh Nizamat".
