Bannang Sata (Thai: บันนังสตา) is a district (Amphoe) in the southern part of Yala Province, southern Thailand.

History[edit]

The name Bannang Sata is actually the Thai corruption of Benang Setar (Jawi: بنڠ ستار), its original Malay name. "Benang" means sewing thread, while "setar" is a tree with small and sour fruit (Bouea macrophylla).[1]

In the past the district was named Ba Cho (บาเจาะ) controlled by Mueang Raman, created in 1907.[2] The name Ba Cho is actually the Thai corruption of Bachok (Jawi: باچوق), its original Malay name. Later when the government reformed administration, the district office was moved to a new location and renamed to be Bannang Sata.[3]
