Khon Buri in Thai language means the origin of the river, which refers to one of tributaries of the Mun river passing through. In the past it was called Ban Khon Buri. When the town grew, it was changed to be Mueang Khon and Khon Buri finally.
As Tambon Khon Buri was very far from the center of Pak Thong Chai district, the government made it to be administrated together with the sub-district Chae in 1939. At the same time, it was officially upgraded to a full district and renamed to Khon Buri.
Neighbouring districts are (from the north clockwise) Chok Chai and Nong Bun Mak of Nakhon Ratchasima Province, Nong Ki of Buriram Province, Soeng Sang of Nakhon Ratchasima, Watthana Nakhon and Mueang Sa Kaeo of Sa Kaeo Province, Na Di of Prachinburi Province, and Wang Nam Khiao and Pak Thong Chai of Nakhon Ratchasima. The Sankamphaeng Range mountainous area is located in the southern section of this district.
The district is subdivided into 12 subdistricts (tambon). There are three townships (thesaban tambon) within the district - Chae and Chorakhe Hin each covering parts of the same-named tambon, and Sai Yong-Chai Wan covering parts of the tambon Khon Buri and Khon Buri Tai.
