Si Narong (Thai: ศรีณรงค์, pronounced [sǐː nā.rōŋ]) is a district (amphoe) of Surin Province, northeastern Thailand.

History[edit]

The minor district (King Amphoe) was established on April 1, 1995 with five tambon split from Sangkha district.[1]

Following a decision of the Thai government on May 15, 2007, all of the 81 minor districts were to be upgraded to full districts.[2] With the publishing in the Royal Gazette on August 24 the upgrade became official.[3]
