Tha Sala ( _th. ท่าศาลา) is a district ("Amphoe") of Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, southern Thailand.

Geography

Neighboring districts are (from the south clockwise) Mueang Nakhon Si Thammarat, Phrom Khiri, Nopphitam and Sichon. To the east is the Gulf of Thailand.

History

During the "thesaphiban" administrative reforms 5 "Mueang" of the Nakhon Si Thammarat kingdom were put together to form the district of Nakhon Si Thammarat province. These mueang were Thai Buri, Ron Ka Ro , Klai, Mo Khlan and Noppitham. [ [http://www.thasalacity.go.th/history.php History of Tha Sala township] ] At its establishment in 1897 the district was named Klai (กลาย) and subdivided into the 10 "tambon" Tha Sala, Tha Khuen, Sa Kaeo, Klai, Thaiburi, Ka Ro, Noppitham, Hua Taphan, Mo Khlan, Don Tako. The first district officer was Charoen (Mai Sap Nam Sakun) , the district office was located at the coast in Ban Paknam Thasung. In 1916 the district office was moved to "tambon" Tha Sala and thus the district was renamed accordingly. [ [http://arc.nstru.ac.th/nakhon/tasala/ Nakhon Si Thammarat Rajabhat University] ]

The western part of the district was split off to form the new minor district Nopphitam in 1995.

Administration

The district is subdivided into 10 subdistricts ("tambon"), which are further subdivided into 107 villages ("muban"). Tha Sala is a township ("thesaban tambon") which covers parts of "tambon" Tha Sala. There are further 10 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).Missing numbers are now part of the district Nopphitam.
