Ban Na Yang Glug
The word “Ban Na Yang Glug” has the meaning. “Na” means the field in the west side of the village. “Yang” means the three large rubber trees at Chao Pho Khun Phon Pavilion next to Krachuan brook. “Glug” means the tree called Krabao Glug. Therefore, people in the past called this place Ban Na Yang Glug, which is a name with good meaning.The pioneers of this community were known as “Chao Dong.” They learnt how to weave the spectacular and elaborate silks; for example, in the pattern of Siam tulip, by hand. This is very well-known for this village. Silk threads, which the villagers grew, are boiled and drawn one after another. After that, they are bleached, twisted, and tie-dyed with natural color. When they are well dried, they will be weaved by traditional loom into various beautiful and colorful pieces of cloth. “Siam tulip,” which is also called “Gustavia,” is a plant in the same family of ginger and is an annual crop. Its rootstocks are underground. During winter and summer, the rootstocks of Siam tulip are underground and, in rainy season, the rain will make this flower blossom. As a result, the Siam Tulip Blooming Festival is held in Pa Hin Ngam National Park and Sai Thong National Park in Chaiyaphum Province. Siam tulip field marks a highlight of Pa Hin Ngam National Park. In the area of more than 10 Rai, a number of pink Siam tulips are blossomed throughout the field. It is even more wonderful particularly when the fog moves gently above the flowers in the morning. Besides, the national park had a bridge built for the tourists to walk and see the field more conveniently.
