Sing Buri

Sing Buri was a great city in Thai history for the heroic act

of the villagers of Bang Rachan in battle. Located on the

west bank of the Chao Phraya River, about 142 km from

Bangkok, it has an area of around 841 sq km. Geographically,

 it is a basin where three rivers: Chao Phraya, Noi, and

Lop Buri, flow through. Somdet Khrom Phraya Damrong

Rajanuphab described the city that “Sing Buri is an ancient

and large city with a fortress, a royal palace, and Wat Maha

That.” One important thing is the reclining Chakkrasi

Buddha image which is larger than the others in Thailand.

It is an imitation of the Indian Buddha image, like the one

at a cave in Yala province. Sing Buri was called by different

names: the city of Singha Rachathirat or the city of Singha

Racha. The city sits by “Chakkrasi the large river, 200 Sen

(Thai measurement equivalent to 40 m) away from the

Chao Phraya River. Since the Chakkrasi River has been

shallow, the city of Sing Buri has become a mysterious

city.” The city of Sing Buri was established as Sing Buri

province in 1895 during the reign of King Rama V.

Presently, it is divided into six administrative districts;

namely, Amphoe Mueang Sing Buri, Amphoe In Buri,

Amphoe Bang Rachan, Amphoe Khai Bang Rachan,

Amphoe Phrom Buri, and Amphoe Tha Chang.

Among the charms of Sing Buri, many roads in the town of

Sing Buri are named after the heroes of the Bang Rachan

village, such as Nai Thaen, Nai Dok, Nai In, Nai Mueang,

Khun San, etc. Besides, there are a great number of

Buddhist temples, both of the old and new ages.
