History


The district was once a province established in 1901 during the reign of King Chulalongkorn. It consisted of Khlong Sam Wa District, Saen Saep District, Nong Chok District, and Chia Radap District (เจียรดับ). The name Min Buri (meaning 'city of fish') was chosen to go with the existing Thanyaburi Province (meaning 'city of rice'). Economic problems during 1930-1931 caused the government to disband various organizations to reduce expenses. Min Buri Province was eliminated and turned into amphoe (district) Min Buri and Lat Krabang District of Bangkok, and Nong Chok District of Chachoengsao Province. In 1957 part of Saen Saep subdistrict of Lat Krabang was transferred to Min Buri. In 1997, the northern part of Min Buri was split off to form the new Khlong Sam Wa District.
