Pathum Wan

Pathum Wan or Pathumwan (Thai: ปทุมวัน; IPA: [pà.tʰūm.wān]) is one of the 50 districts (khet) of Bangkok, Thailand. The district is bounded by seven other districts (from north clockwise): Ratchathewi (across the canal Khlong Saen Saep), Watthana, Khlong Toei, Sathon, Bang Rak, Pom Prap Sattru Phai (across the canal Khlong Phadung Krung Kasem), and Dusit.

The district was established in 1914. It is named after a Buddhist temple Wat Pathum Wanaram (literally meaning lotus forest temple) and the nearby Sa Pathum Palace (means lotus pond palace). Both were built on the order of King Mongkut (Rama IV) and so-named because of an abundance of lotus in Khlong Saen Saep during his reign.
