Buri Ram

Buri Ram literally means the pleasant

city. It is a city with abundant sandstone

sanctuaries of ancient Khmer culture. It is

situated in the lower part of the Northeastern

region, about 410 kilometres from Bangkok.

The province covers a total area of 10,322

square kilometres. The administrative

system is divided into 23 districts. In

Buri Ram, there are archaeological finds of

pre-historic human habitation and ancient

ruins from the Dvaravati period. The most

important historical evidence found in the

province includes more than 60 sandstone

sanctuaries scattered around the area. The

evidence shows that ancient civilisations

once existed in Buri Ram. There are also

discoveries of important Khmer pottery

kiln sites which date back to the 10th –

13th centuries.

After the ancient Khmer period, the

historical evidence of Buri Ram started

again in the late Ayutthaya period as a

protectorate of Nakhon Ratchasima. The

city also appeared again during the Thon Buri

and Rattanakosin periods. Then in 1933,

there was restructuring of the regional

administrative system which turned Buri Ram

into a province until the present day.
