Geography

The district is in central Roi Et Province. Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Chiang Khwan, Selaphum, Thung Khao Luang, At Samat and Mueang Roi Et.

In 1913 the district was renamed from Uthai Roi Et (อุไทยร้อยเอ็ด) to Saeng Badan (แซงบาดาล). In 1939 it received its current name, Thawat Buri.

The district is divided into 12 sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 147 villages (muban). There are two sub-district municipalities (thesaban tambon) - Ban Niwet covers parts of tambon Niwet, Thong Thani covers the whole tambon Thong Thani and parts of Bueng Nakhon. There are a further 11 tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
