Kabin Buri (Thai: กบินทร์บุรี, pronounced [kā.bīn bū.rīː]) is a district (amphoe) in the southeastern part of Prachinburi Province, eastern Thailand.

History[edit]

Mueang Kabin Buri was an ancient city of Ayutthaya kingdom. The city hall was in Ban Hanuman. In 1906 the city hall was moved to Ban Paknam, the area where the Hanuman and Phra Prong Rivers join together to become the Prachin Buri River. On 1 April 1926 the province was abolished and the two districts, Mueang Kabin Buri and Aranyapathret, became districts of Prachinburi Province.[1]

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the west clockwise) Si Maha Phot, Prachantakham, Na Di of Prachinburi Province, Mueang Sa Kaeo and Khao Chakan of Sa Kaeo Province and Sanam Chai Khet of Chachoengsao Province.

The important water resources are the Hanuman, Phra Prong, and Prachin Buri Rivers.
