Bali is an ancient city. A Jain scroll which Colonel James Tod obtained from a Jain guru in Sanderao gives the earliest description of founding of Bali town. It was the heart of the Godwar area in the 11th century. It was also a town where regular horse fair was held to trade the horses.
King Sarubali Baldev won the land of Bali in a battle in 1240 AD and he crowned the area his royal capital, naming it Bali after himself. Legends say that the Pandava children used to play childhood games in this area and a water well still exists which was formed by Bhima, one of the Pandavas.
Modern Bali, the town was founded by Chouhan king Maharao Balaji Balecha and this town is still the heart of Godwar. In 1608 AD King Balasingh constructed the Fort of Bali to protect the city and a wall was built around the city edges to protect it from attack.
