The town was founded by a Tambolis (Pan or Beetle leaf sellers) some more than 800–900 years ago. The place existed as a small village even during the invasion of Ghazi Saiyyad Salar Masud in the early 11th century. During the raid, one of his faithful soldiers, Burhan-ud-din, was killed near this village. He constructed a tomb or dargah for him which still exists.
In the days of Jai Chand, king of Kannauj, a Chandel chieftain, Alha by name, was granted the lands which were afterwards formed into the Tambaur pargana, with Tambaur as it main metropolis. Alha gave this town to one of his lieutenants, Ranua Pasi, who built a fort in it. Soon after, both master and man were slain in battle fighting under the banners of Jai Chand against Prithviraj Chauhan, king of Delhi. The Pasi's descendants still remained in possession for 330 years until dispossessed by Mughal king of Delhi, Akbar.
