Mehsaji Chavda, a Rajput and a heir of Chawda dynasty, established Mehsana.

Gaekwads conquered Vadodara and established Patan as the administrative headquarters of North Gujarat. Later it was moved to Kadi and subsequently to Mehsana in 1902. They merged it with India after independence in 1947. It was included in Bombay state. Later became part of Gujarat in 1960 after divison of Bombay state into Gujarat and Maharashtra. Today Mehsana is a separate district in north Gujarat.

There is a place built by Gaekwads in city known as Rajmahal.

Mehsana is the district headquarters and the nearest town to Modhera and an ideal central location to plan out an itinerary to the surrounding areas. The town is known for its ‘Dudhsagar Dairy’ plant, a post modernist structure designed by Achyut Kanvinde and a must see for architecture enthusiasts.

Mehsana is an important pilgrimage site for Jains in Gujarat. It is dedicated to the current tirthankar, first of the second chauvisi (string of 24) of the Jains, Bhagwan Simandhar Swami. According to Jain astronomy, the scriptures predict the existence of a planet in the north-east direction, know as Mahavideh Kshetra. It says that Bhagwan is alive there and currently preaching to the people of that world.

The huge 32-foot idol sculpted in white marble was installed under the inspiration of Acharya Kailassagarsuri Maharaj Saheb in the year 2028 of the Vikram era in the Hindu Calendar (1971 AD).
