Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Khok Pho, Mae Lan and Yarang of Pattani Province, Raman, Krong Pinang and Yaha of Yala province, and Saba Yoi of Songkhla Province.

History[edit]

Originally only known as Mueang district, the district was renamed to Sateng in 1917 to share the name with the central subdistrict.[1] In 1938, the district was renamed to Mueang Yala to conform with the common name of the central districts of a province.´[2]
