Chantharakasem Palace is assumed to have been built during the Ayutthaya Kingdom in 1577. It was the residence of many kings in the period, namely Naresuan, Ekathotsarot and Narai.

The palace was abandoned after the second fall of Ayutthaya in 1767, but received attention and upkeep during the reign of King Rama IV in 1893.
