The minor district (King Amphoe) was established on April 1, 1995 with area split from Ban Phai district.[1][2]

Following a decision of the Thai government on May 15, 2007, all of the 81 minor districts were to be upgraded to full districts.[3] With the publishing in the Royal Gazette on August 24 the upgrade became official.[4]
