Mueang Phatthalung ( _th. เมืองพัทลุง) is the capital district ("Amphoe Mueang") of Phatthalung Province, southern Thailand.

Geography

Neighboring districts are (from the south clockwise) Khao Chaison, Kong Ra, Srinagarindra, and Khuan Khanun of Phatthalung Province, and Ranot and Krasae Sin of Songkhla Province.

The eastern part of the district is at the shore of the Thale Luang, the northern part of the Songkhla Lake.

History

The district Klang Mueang (กลางเมือง) was one of the three original districts established in 1896. In 1917 it was renamed to Lampam (ลำปำ), following the name of the "tambon" containing the district administration. [cite journal|journal=Royal Gazette|volume=34|issue=0 ก|pages=40–68|title=ประกาศกระทรวงมหาดไทย เรื่อง เปลี่ยนชื่ออำเภอ|url=http://www.ratchakitcha.soc.go.th/DATA/PDF/2460/A/40.PDF|date=April 29 1917|language=Thai] The administration was moved to "tambon" Khuha Sawan in 1924. 1938 the district was finally renamed to Mueang Phatthalung.

Administration

The district is subdivided into 14 subdistricts ("tambon"), which are further subdivided into 144 villages ("muban"). The town ("thesaban mueang") Phatthalung covers the whole "tambon" Khuhu Sawan, and small parts of the "tambon" Khao Chiak, Tha Miram, Prang Mu, Lampam, Tamnan and Khuan Maphrao. There are further 13 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).Missing numbers are "tambon" which now form Srinagarindra district.
