Thothae (Thai : ท้อแท้) is a sub-district in the Wat Bot District of Phitsanulok Province, Thailand.

Contents

Name origin

The word thothae means 'tired', "weary", 'downhearted', or 'dejected'. It is formed from the two elements, tho (Thai: ท้อ) meaning 'discourage', and thae (Thai: แท้) meaning 'real' or 'genuine'.

According to local legend, the village is far from other villages, and the distance can make travellers weary. [1] [2] Despite the negative meaning, residents did not change the village name, only the Buddhist temple Wat Thothae (Thai: วัดท้อแท้) in Thothae was renamed Wat Thong Thae (Thai: วัดทองแท้; lit.: 'real golden temple'). [2]

Geography

Thothae lies in the Nan Basin, which is part of the Chao Phraya Watershed.

Administration

The sub-district is divided into eight smaller divisions called ( muban ), which roughly correspond to villages. There are six villages, two of which occupy several mubans. [3] Thothae is administered by a tambon administrative organization (TAO). The mubans in Thotae are enumerated as follows: [4]
