Faridkot according to a legend was founded by Raja Mokalsar who built a fort named Mokal Har some 700 years ago. Some describe the founding of the place even earlier when Bhatties came to occupy this place from the South. The name of the place was changed to its present name after the name of BABA FARID JI, a Muslim Sufi saint of repute. The story goes that while the fort was under construction/repair, BABA FARID JI was forced to work on it.
