Our Lady of Fatima Church is known for its stained-glass windows and monthly processions, while the nearby Thailand Cultural Centre stages classical concerts and ballets. The district was created in 1993, when the eastern part of Phaya Thai was split off to form a new district. The district is highly populated partly due to the concentration of apartments along Din Daeng Road and Pracha Songkhro Road, built by the National Housing Authority.
It’s name ,”Din Daeng”, meaning “red soil”, derived from the name of Din Daeng Road that cuts through the area because during the period of the government of Field Marshal Plaek Pibulsongkram, the construction of this road made this area full of red soil dust. The district is now predominantly residential with different military and government offices spread around, along with a multitude of restaurants and local shops.
