Mueang Pattani (Thai: เมืองปัตตานี) is the capital district (Amphoe Mueang) of Pattani Province, southern Thailand.

History

This area was the center of the Pattani Kingdom. In the reign of King Rama II, the king ordered to divide the kingdom to 7 cities (Mueang), Pattani, Yaha, Yaring, Nong Chik, Ra-ngae, Raman and Sai Buri. It was officially settled to be a district in 1901. Pattani was the central district of Monthon Pattani when King Rama V created the monthon in 1906.

Geography
