Ta Din Dang campaign” was a short conflict, occurring in 1786 in Ta Din Dang, in Kanchanaburi Province, the largest of the western provinces (changwat) of Thailand. The belligerents were Bodawpaya of the Burmese Konbaung Dynasty, against Phraphutthayotfa Chulalok and Maha Sura Singhanat of the Rattanakosin Kingdom.

As his armies were destroyed, Bodawpaya retreated, only to renew attacks next year . Bodawpaya, this time, did not divide his troops but instead formed into single army. Bodawpaya passed through the Chedi Sam Ong and settled in Ta Din Dang. The Front Palace marched the Siamese forces to face Bodawpaya. The fighting was very short and Bodawpaya was quickly defeated.
