There is a legend that Mughal Sobedar, Mirza Hossain Ali Khan built a palace in the present place of upazila headquarters of Chandina upazila in Comilla district. He set up a big lamp on a high pillar in front of the palace for fear of tigers. The lamp illuminated the entire area with bright light and local people called the area as Chandi meaning a place of light of the moon. Subsequently the place where the upazila headquarters is located became known as Chandina with some phonetic corruption of the previous name Chandi. The upazila came into existence as a Thana in 1876.
