Lumphini (also Lumpini or Lumpinee, Thai: ลุมพินี, IPA: [lūm.pʰi.nīː]) is one of the 169 sub-districts (khwaeng) of Bangkok. It has the geocode 100704, and is part of the district (khet) Pathum Wan.

Occupying the area between Khlong Saen Saep to the north, the Maenam railway branch line to the east, Rama IV Road to the south, and Ratchadamri Road to the west, it is home to the shopping areas of Phloen Chit Road, embassies and office towers lining Witthayu Road, residential highrises and hotels of Ratchadamri and Lang Suan, as well as the eponymous Lumphini Park. The Suan Lum Night Bazaar and the Lumphini Boxing Stadium used to be located in the subdistrict.

Lumphini is the Thai spelling for Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha in Nepal.
