NAKHON NAYOK

Nakhon Nayok is an ancient town since Dhavaravadi period, assumed from its remaining wall and moat in Tambon Dong Lakhon. The town name “Nakhon Nayok” is found in artefact from Ayutthaya period as an eastern forefront of battles during the reign of King U-Thong. In 1894, King Rama V of Rattanakosin had redesigned the administrative structure and that made Nakhon Nayok part of province. Until 1902, the position of ruler was replaced by governor. Nakhon Nayok was combined as part of Prachin Buri and Saraburi during 1943-1946, before it was set up as a province eventually. Formerly, Nakhon Nayok was known as “Ban Na”. It was said that during Ayutthaya period, the province was blanketed with jungle. Its high plain made it difficult to thrive on farming. Moreover, pandemic of malaria had driven people to else where, leaving Ban Na as empty town. When the King had realized such difficulty, he wiped the rice tax. This had attracted people to come back, making Ban Na a big community again. So, the people called this city “Mueang Nayok” or literary the city of prime minister.
