Angthong originally known as Muang Wiset Chai Chan, is located no the Noi River. According to the Royal Chronicle of Ayutthaya, Angthong was an essential frontier outpost of Ayutthaya when fighting with the Burmese. In particular during the last war,the Burmese encamped at Muang Wiset Chai Chan to attack Ayutthaya causing "the Battle at Bang Rachan" in Singburi the most important event ever recorded in Thai history. Later during the Thonburi period, Muang Wiset Chai Chan was moved to a new site on the left bank of the Chao Phraya River at Ban Bangkaeo and was named "Muang Angthong" since its new location was a fertile basin similar to a water and rice bowl of the country. According to traditional belief, any region which is rich in rice and fish would be similarly a treasure city filling up with silver and gold. Angthong is located 108 kilometers from Bangkok, and 35 kilometers from Ayutthaya. Topographically almost all of the Angthong area is low plain without any forests or mountains. There are two important rivers : the Chao Phraya River and the Noi River. Angthong is administratively divided into 7 districts; Amphoe Muang Angthong, Wiset Chai Chan, Chaiyo, Pho Thong, Sawaengha, Pa Mok and Samko.
