Sing Buri is the provincial capital of Sing Buri Province, in the central region of Thailand.

Sing Buri was a great city in Thai history for the heroic act of the villagers of Bang Rachan in battle. Located on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, about 142 km from Bangkok, it has an area of around 841 sq km. Geographically, it is a basin where three rivers: Chao Phraya, Noi, and Lop Buri, flow through.

Somdet Khrom Phraya Damrong Rajanuphab described the city that €œSing Buri is an ancient and large city with a fortress, a royal palace, and Wat Maha That. One important thing is the reclining Chakkrasi Buddha image which is larger than the others in Thailand. It is an imitation of the Indian Buddha image, like the one at a cave in Yala province. Sing Buri was called by different names: the city of Singha Rachathirat or the city of Singha Racha. The city sits by €˜Chakkrasi, the large river, 200 Sen (Thai measurement equivalent to 40 m) away from the Chao Phraya River. Since the Chakkrasi River has been shallow, the city of Sing Buri has become a mysterious city. The city of Sing Buri was established as Sing Buri province in 1895 during the reign of King Rama V.

Among the charms of Sing Buri, many roads in the town of Sing Buri are named after the heroes of the Bang Rachan village, such as Nai Thaen, Nai Dok, Nai In, Nai Mueang, Khun San, etc. Besides, there are a great number of Buddhist temples, both of the old and new ages.
