Non Din Daeng (Thai: โนนดินแดง, pronounced [nōːn dīn dɛ̄ːŋ]) is the southwesternmost district (amphoe) of Buriram Province, northeastern Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Pakham, Lahan Sai of Buriram Province, Ta Phraya, Watthana Nakhon of Sa Kaeo Province and Soeng Sang of Nakhon Ratchasima Province.

The Sankamphaeng Range mountainous area is in the southern section of this district.

History[edit]

The minor district (king amphoe) Non Din Daeng was created on 31 May 1993, when three tambon were split off from Lahan Sai district.[1] It was upgraded to a full district on December 5, 1996.[2]

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into three sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 45 villages (muban). Non Din Daeng is a township (thesaban tambon) which covers parts of tambon Non Din Daeng and Sompoi. There are also three tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
