The minor district (King Amphoe) was created on 1 April 1991, when six tambon were split off from Amnat Charoen District. In 1993 it was one of the districts which formed the newly created Amnat Charoen Province. The minor district was upgraded to a full district on 5 December 1996.

Administration

The district is divided into seven sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 79 villages (muban). Amnat is a township (thesaban tambon) which covers parts of the tambon Amnat. There are further seven tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
