Daudkandi upazila came into existence in 1858 as thana. There are different views about the origin of the upazila name. It is believed that the upazila might have derived its name from the name of Daud Khan, the son of Solaiman Karrani who declared himself as the independent ruler of Bengal during the reign of Emperor Akbar. The second view is that during British rule, the present area where the upazila headquarters is located was known as Devid Skendi. It is generally believed that the upazila name Daudkandi might have been derived from the words Devid and Skendi with some phonetic corruption.

Below are some images of recent Daudkandi upazila, most of these images has taken on April, 2011.
