Phatthalung Province


Braveheart

Recommended Posts

Phatthalung (Thai: พัทลุง) is one of the southern provinces (changwat) of Thailand.

 

The province is located on the Malay Peninsula. To the east it borders the large shallow Songkhla lake, while the west is covered by mountains of the Nakhon Si Thammarat chain. The Khao Pu - Khao Ya National Park is located in these mountains at the border to Trang.

 

During the reign of King Ramathibodi I of the Ayutthaya kingdom in the 14th century Phatthalung became one of twelve royal cities. At the end of the 18th century King Rama I submitted the city to the Ministry of Defense, which was responsible for all the southern provinces. During the administrative reform by King Chulalongkorn Phatthalung became part of the Monthon Nakhon Si Thammarat.

 

11.1% of the population are muslims.

 

The provincial seal shows the 250 meter high Phu Khao Ok Thalu mountain, the symbol of the province.

The provincial tree as well as the provincial flower is the Sweet Shorea (Shorea roxburghii).

 

Phatthalung is subdivided into 10 districts (Amphoe) and one minor district (King Amphoe). The districts are further subdivided into 65 communes (tambon) and 626 villages (muban).
