Mueang Pattani ( _th. 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

Neighboring districts are (from the east clockwise) Yaring, Yarang and Nong Chik. To the north is the Gulf of Thailand.

The important water resource is the Tani river.

Administration

The district is subdivided into 13 subdistricts ("tambon"), which are further subdivided into 66 villages ("muban"). Pattani is a town ("thesaban mueang") and covers the complete "tambon" Sabarang, Anoru and Chabang Tiko. There are further 10 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
