History[edit]

Originally named Pachim Kalasin (ปจิมกาฬสินธุ์), the district was renamed Phu Len Chang (ภูแล่นช้าง) in 1913.[1] In 1917, it received its current name Yang Talat.[2]

There are six subdistrict municipalities (thesaban tambon) - Yang Talat covers parts of tambon Yang Talat, and Dok Si covers parts of tambon Dok Sombun and Um Mao. Bua Ban, Itue, Hua Na Kham and Khao Phra Non are further subdistrict municipalities which cover the whole same-named subdistrict. There are further 11 tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
