Dan Khun Thot ( _th. ด่านขุนทด) is a district ("Amphoe") in western part of Nakhon Ratchasima Province, Thailand.

History

The town Dan Khun Thot was built before the reign of King Taksin. It became an Amphoe in 1908. At the same time, the center of the town was moved from "Wat" Pho Chumphon to the western side of the Ban Han school. The district was thus renamed to "Amphoe" Ban Han. Later it was named Phan Chana, until it was renamed back Dan Khun Thot in 1914.
