Amphoe Mueang, Lopburi
0 3661 1438
Lop Buri is widely known in the Kingdom for being the best source for high quality lime-rich mud or marl, called Din So Phong in Thailand. The marl comes mainly from Din So Phong or Hin Song Kon Village, ThaleChup Son Sub-district (by a canal called KhlongChonlaprathan, around Saphan 6, or Bridge 6). Nearly every home is involved in the production of the precious marl, specializing in a type of white marl with a delicate but dense texture. This particular type is not suited for agricultural purposes, and is used instead as a raw material for products such as talcum powder, cosmetics, toothpaste and furniture filler.
For more information on the village, contact ThaleChup Son Sub-district Administrative Organization at 0 3661 1438.
