PREDECESSORS AND SHORT HISTORY: Founded in 1544 by Dewan Ugra Sen, a Khichi Rajput, a section of the great Chauhan clan, who was forced by family dissensions to migrate from the Khichi capital of Gagraun. A grant of land was subsequently made to him by the Mughal Emperor, which included the adjoining Zirapur and Machalpur parganas, later a part of Indore state, and Shujalpur, later in Gwalior state. Khilchipur is famous for the Shrine of Sufi Saint Fazal Hussain Shah also known as Peer Yazdani.
