Bamnet Narong ( _th. บำเหน็จณรงค์) is a district ("Amphoe") in the southwestern part of Chaiyaphum Province, northeastern Thailand.

History

In the reign of King Rama II of Rattanakosin, the area of Bamnet Narong was a frontier town only, called Dan Chuan (ด่านชวน). Due to the town was located in the strategic area thus King Nangklao (Rama III) ordered a good soldier from "Mueang" Khukhan to be the head of the town. In 1826 when King Anouvong of Lan Xang moved his troops to Siam. At Nakhon Ratchasima, the head of Dan Chuan lead his soldiers to battle against the Laotian troop. Because of his courage, King Rama III promoted the leader of Dan Chuan to be "Phra" Ritthi Rue Chai (พระฤทธิฤาชัย) and upgraded Dan Chuan to be "Mueang" Bamnet Narong, under Mueang Nakhon Ratchasima.

In 1897 King Chulalongkorn downgraded Bamnet Narong to be a district of Chaiyaphum Province. It was downgraded to be Tambon Ban Chuan of Chatturat district in 1903. Later it was upgraded to be Bamnet Narong minor district ("King Amphoe") in 1905. It was renamed to Ban Chuan after the central "tambon", and back to the original name in 1939.
