Mueang Uttaradit (Thai: เมืองอุตรดิตถ์, pronounced [mɯ̄a̯ŋ ʔùt.tā.rā.dìt]) is the capital district (amphoe mueang) of Uttaradit Province, northern Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the east clockwise) Tha Pla, Thong Saen Khan, Tron, Laplae of Uttaradit Province and Den Chai of Phrae Province.

History[edit]

In 1917 the district was renamed from Mueang to Bang Pho (บางโพ).[1] In 1938 it was renamed back to Mueang Uttaradit.[2]

Administration[edit]

The district is subdivided into 17 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 154 villages (muban). The town (thesaban mueang) Uttaradit covers the whole tambon Tha It. There are three more subdistrict municipalities (thesaban tambon) - Wang Kaphi and Ban Ko each cover the whole of their eponymous tambons, and Ban Dan Na Kham covers parts of tambon Ban Dan Na Kham. There are further 15 Tambon Administrative Organizations (TAO).
