Phrom Buri (Thai: พรหมบุรี; IPA: [pʰrōm būrīː]) is a district (amphoe) in the eastern part of Singburi Province, central Thailand.

History[edit]

The town (Mueang) of Phrom Buri dates back to before the reign of King U Thong, the first king of Ayutthaya kingdom. The old city was located at Wat Amphawan, Tambon Phrom Buri. Later the center of the city was moved to Pak Bang Muen Han (ปากบางหมื่นหาญ) and to the north side of Wat Phromma Thephawat.

During the thesaphiban reforms, Phrom Buri was one of the provinces included into Monthon Krungkao (later renamed to Monthon Ayutthaya) in 1895. It was later downgraded to a district within the province Singburi.

In 1943 the district office was moved to its present location north side of Wat Kudi Thong.
