Sing Buri

 

Sing Buri is a central province north of Bangkok which was established in 1895. The name Sing Buri means 'City of Lion'.

This province is divided into 6 districts and has over 350 villages.  Districts are Mueang Sing Buri, Bang Rachan, Khai Bang Rachan, Phrom Buri, Tha Chang and In Buri.

The main tourist sites here are Temples such as Wat Phra Non Chakkrasi worawihan which is famous for its 46metre reclining Buddha image, Wat Sawong Arom which is a arts temple, Wat Na Phrathat and Wat Prachotikaram.  Apart from temples you have the famous Heroes of Khai Bang Rachan Monument & Khai Bang Rachan Park which holds homage to the 11 heroic leaders of Bang Rachan. Also there is the In Buri national museum.

Sing Buri is most famous for its battle in Bang Rachan against the Burmese in 1765.  The villagers who were greatly out numbered by the Burmese fought off 7 attacks before being defeated on the 8th attack due to lack of weapons.  Nowadays the area is famous for  its Khanom Pia which is a Chinese pastry and has been made there since 1936.  Sing Buri also holds  a Long Tailed Boat race in September every year on the Chao Phraya River which is great to see.
