Its been described by Prof. Goti John that this city was named Bedamooth in an ancient inscription (stone scripts, at Lucknow Museum). Then this region was called Panchal. According to the lines on stone scripts there was a village Bhadaunlak near the city. A Muslim historian Roz Khan Lodhi said that here Ashoka The Great built a Buddh Vihar and Quila and he named it BuddhMau. According to George Smith, Budaun was named after Ahir prince Budh.3

The 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica wrote of Buduan:
"A town and district of British India, in the Rohilkhand division of the United Provinces. The town is near the left bank of the river Sot. Pop. (1901) 39,031. There are ruins of an immense fort and a very handsome mosque of imposing size, crowned with a dome, and built in 1223. The American Methodist mission maintains several girls schools, and there is a high school for boys. According to tradition, Badaun was founded about 905 AD, and an inscription, probably of the 12th century, gives a list of twelve Rathor kings reigning at Badaun (called Vodamayuta). The first authentic historical event connected with it, however, was its capture by Qutb-ud-din Aibak in 1196, after which it became a very important post on the northern frontier of the Delhi empire. In the 13th century two of its governors, Shams-ud-din Iltutmish, the builder of the great mosque referred above, and his son Rukn ud din Firuz, attained the imperial throne. In 1571 the town was burnt, and about a hundred years later, under Shah Jahan, the seat of the governorship was transferred to Sahaspur- Bilari; According to Government of India, the district Badaun is one of the Minority Concentrated Districts in India, having 34% of Muslim population, on the basis of the 2001 census data on population, socio-economic indicators and basic amenities indicators."6
