Sattahip’s Khet Udomsak celebrated 10 years as a municipality with a ceremony devoted to the father of the Thai navy.
He led a merit-making ceremony dedicated to fabled Prince of Chumphon Abhakara Kiartivongse with sailors, civil servants, community leaders and residents.
Khet Udomsak was founded on Jan. 19, 1996 as a Sattahip Sub-district Administrative Organization. On July 25, 2008 it was upgraded to a municipality approved by Ministry of Interior.
The legendary prince and father of the Thai navy is seen as the father of the region, as most of the sub district is navy property.
