Lopburi river a bond of Chao Praya-Pa Sak      

            Lopburi province has 2 main rivers flowing aside. The first one is Pa Sak river (and Pa Sak Jolasid Dam) and the second one is Lopburi river. The Lopburi river has a strong bond with local people for a long period, because it flows directly across Lopburi city and has become useful for daily consumption and agriculture aspects.

            Lopburi river is in fact one of the main branches of the Chao Pra Ya river, it just didn’t flow directly to the Chao Pra Ya river. On the contrary, it all started from Chao Pra Ya river and then flows in to join with the Pa Sak river. Headwater of Lopburi flows separately from the Chao Pra Ya river at Tambol Mueng Moo, Singh buri province.From there it then flows in an Eastern direction entering Lopburi province at Amphur Ta Woung, and Amphur Muang. It then flows to Ayutthaya province. Did you know that, Lopburi river will flow to join with Pa sak river at Tambol Hui Rau, Amphur Phra Nakorn Sri Ayutthaya, and where the Pa Sak river flow to after that? Well! the answer is it flows to match up with Chao Pra Ya river in front of Wat Pa Nun Cherng, Amphur Phra Nakorn Sri Ayutthaya. This means that Lopburi river will separate itself from Chao Pra river but in the end won’t be able to do so. This is why Lopburi river is a part of Chao Pra Ya river.

            In any case, Lopburi river that we see today doesn’t have the same passage as it did before. This is because they have dug a cannel to connect Lopburi river and Pa Sak river together since the Ayutthaya period. No matter how much changes they made, Lopburi river still remains a historical residence for human beings for more than 3,000 years. With lots of important evidence in building both a city base, and the giant Kingdom.
