Sing Buri Province


Recommended Posts

Sing Buri (Thai สิงห์บุรี) is one of the central provinces (changwat) of Thailand.


Sing Buri is located in the flat river plain of the Chao Phraya river valley.


The area of Singburi hold an important position in early Thai history since Dvaravati period down to Ayudhaya period. Formerly the province separated into 3 small provinces - In Buri, Prom Buri and Sing Buri - which were unified by King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) in 1895.


The provincial seal shows the fort of Khai Bangrachan, a historical monument. When the Burmese attacked Ayutthaya in 1765, eleven villagers from Bangrachan fought the army when it stopped north of Ayutthaya. They managed to delay them for five months before they were finally defeated, soon thereafter Ayutthaya fell as well. Annually on February 4 a ceremony is held in remembrance of these local heroes. This story was also made into a movie in Thailand.

Provincial tree is the Red Sandalwood Tree (Adenanthera pavonina).


The province is subdivided into 6 districts (Amphoe). The districts are further subdivided into 43 communes (tambon) and 363 villages.
