Sila Lat (Thai: ศิลาลาด) is a district (Amphoe) in the northwestern part of Sisaket Province, northeastern Thailand.

History[edit]

The minor district (King Amphoe) was established on July 1, 1997, when four tambon were split off from Rasi Salai district.[1]

Following a decision of the Thai government on May 15, 2007, all of the 81 minor districts were to be upgraded to full districts.[2] With the publishing in the Royal Gazette on August 24 the upgrade became official.[3]

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the south clockwise) Rasi Salai of Sisaket Province, Phon Sai, Nong Hi and Phanom Phrai of Roi Et Province, and Maha Chana Chai of Yasothon Province.

Administration[edit]

The district is subdivided into 4 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 44 villages (muban). There are no municipal (thesaban) areas, and 4 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
