Sing Buri is one of the central provinces ( Changwat ) of Thailand. Neighbouring provinces are Nakhon Sawan, Lop Buri, Ang Thong, Suphan Buri and Chai Nat. The word Sing originates from the Sanskrit  word Singh  meaning lion, and the word Buri from Sanskrit Puri meaning town or city. Hence the name of the province literally means City of Lion. Sing Buri is located in the flat river plain of the Chao Phraya river valley.

The area of Sing Buri hold an important position in early Thai history since Dvaravati period down to Ayutthaya period. Formerly the province separated into three small provinces - In Buri, Prom Buri and Sing Buri - which were unified by King Chulalongkorn  ( Rama V ) in 1895.

The province is subdivided into six districts ( Amphoe ). The districts are further subdivided into 43 communes ( Tambon ) and 363 villages ( Muban ).

The provincial seal shows the fort of Khai Bangrachan, a historical monument. When the Burmese attacked Ayutthaya in 1765, 11 villagers from Bangrachan fought the army when it stopped north of Ayutthaya.

They managed to delay them for five months before they were finally defeated, soon thereafter Ayutthaya fell as well. Annually on February 4th. a ceremony is held in remembrance of these local heroes. This story was also made into a movie in Thailand. Provincial tree is the Red Sandalwood Tree ( Adenanthera pavonina )
