Tak Province

Tak is a province in the lower North of Thailand. Its former name was “Mueang Rahaeng”. In the past, Mon (the Burmese people) lived here; evidence of Mon arts still remains.

The Mon town was originally located at Amphoe Ban Tak. It was established before the Sukhothai period. The town was an important gateway to the west during the Sukhothai period.
