King Prasat Thong built the palace as his royal residence in mid Ayutthaya period. The king commissioned building a pavilion in middle of a pond and named it “Phra Thinang Ai Sawan Thippaya-at” or “Ai Sawan Thippaya-at Pavilion”. He also built a temple called “Wat Chumphol Nikayaram”. It is believed that Ayutthaya kings always went for pleasures at Bang Pa-In Palace, but after Ayutthaya was destroyed in 1767, the palace was left and deserted. King Mongkut, the fourth king of Rattanakosin, commissioned renovating the royal residences inside the palace, and used the residences again in his reign. He also built a pavilion in the middle of a pond and named it “Phra Thinang Ai Sawan Thippaya-at” like the iriginal pavilion built by King Prasat Thong.
