Yasothon is a town on the Chi River in the northeastern region of Thailand. It is the capital and administrative center of Yasothon Province and seat of its City District. Within this district, subdistrict Nai Mueang comprises the bounds of the town proper, which had a population of 21,134 in 2005. It lies a little more than 500km northeast of Bangkok, the Thai capital.HistoryFoundingIn A.D. 1811/2354 B.E., Chao ("Lord") Racha Wong Singh more often transliterated Sing, led a number of people to landing on the River Chi, to found a town on a bluff by a deserted temple ground. Sing was a son of Chao Phraya Wichai in the capital of Champasak The town was first called Ban Sing Kow or Ban Sing Tha. While there are numerous Khmer artifacts in and around the city, no written history is known prior to that year.A weather-worn and now nearly illegible marker erected by Thailand's Fine Arts department for a Khmer chedi by Wat Sing Tha, related that during the Thonburi Era, grandson Thao Kham Su called the settlement Ban Sing Thong. The wat, which had been deserted until dense jungle growth blocked the landing, was cleared, re-built and renamed after the new village. The change from Thong (Gold) to Tha was influenced by two factors: Tha means port or landing. and also pose with many connotations. Thus the change in name to Sing Tha means Port Lion, and also Imposing Lion such as those posed on the Lion Gate, and on pedestals on the temple grounds. (For the legendary version, see Symbols of Yasothon province.)
