MUKDAHARN
 
Mukdahan is a gateway to Laos, opposite to the Suwannakhet. It is besides Mekhong River and offering beautiful sceneries along the riverside. At the top of Phu Manorom, one can see the panoramic view of Mukdahan town, Mekhong River and Siiwannakhet town.
 
In Ayuthaya period, the left side of Mekhong River is a location of Wasan Khet town. There was the village named "Ban Luang Phon Sin", near Phrathat Ing Hung (Buddha relics pagoda). And there was a king named "Chao Chanthara Suriyawong". The king's son, "Kinnari", had moved across the river to built a town in 1770.

Kinnari named the town as "Mukdahan", following to his dream. In the dream, he had seen the villagers called the town "Muk". Later in 1778, King Taksin Maharat established him to be the first governer. The provincial administration has been changed for several times. Finally, Mukdahan was established as a province in 1982. It is the 73th province of Thailand.
