Prachaksinlapakhom (Thai: ประจักษ์ศิลปาคม) is a district (amphoe) in central Udon Thani Province, northeastern Thailand.


Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Nong Han, Ku Kaeo, Kumphawapi, and Mueang Udon Thani.


The minor district (king amphoe) was established on 1 June 1997 by splitting it from Kumphawapi District. The creation became effective on 1 July 1997.[1]

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


Central administration[edit]

The district Prachaksinlapakhom is subdivided into three sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 41 administrative villages (Muban).

Local administration[edit]

There are three sub-district administrative organizations (SAO) in the district:

  • Na Muang (Thai: องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลนาม่วง) consisting of sub-district Na Muang.
  • Huai Sam Phat (Thai: องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลห้วยสามพาด) consisting of sub-district Huai Sam Phat.
  • Um Chan (Thai: องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลอุ่มจาน) consisting of sub-district Um Chan.


Huai Sam Phat and Na Muang Sub-districts are among five Udon Thani sub-districts to harbour mining operations of the Udon North potash mine, although the mine has met with local resistance.[5]
