Adipur was originally founded as a refugee camp after the partition of India, in 1947, by the government of India. Its administration was passed onto a self-governing body called the Sindhu Resettlement Corporation (SRC). The person credited with the formation of this settlement was Bhai Pratap Dialdas, who requested land from Mahatma Gandhi for the (mostly Sindhi) immigrants from what was, at the time, West Pakistan. The Maharaj of Kutch, Maharao Shri Vijayrajji Khengarji on the advice of Gandhi donated 15,000 acres (61 km2) of land. Adipur like Gandhidham was built on the donated land. The Indian Institute of Sindhology was established at Adipur is a center for advanced studies and research in the fields related to the Sindhi language, literature, art and culture.
Adipur has nine higher education institutions run by Tolani Collegiate Board:
- Tolani Commerce College
- Tolani College of Arts and Science
- Tolani Institute of Management Studies
- Tolani Foundation Gandhidham Polytechnic
- Tolani College of Pharmacy
- Tolani institute of law
- Tolani institute of commerce
- Dada Dukhayal College of Education
- Dr. H. R. Gajwani College of Education
Admissions were traditionally competitive with the rest of the district, but overall, due to the limited infrastructure surrounding the campuses, the populace is mostly local students from Anjar, Gandhidham, Adipur, and other surrounding towns.
Schools in the city include St. Xavier's School, Sadhu Hiranand Navalrai Academy & Twinkle Star English medium School.
- Maharaja of Kutch on advice of Gandhiji, gave 15000 acres of land to Bhai Pratab, who founded Sindhu Resettlement Corporation to rehabilitate Sindhi Hindus uprooted from their motherland.
