It has been built by Princess Dara Rasamee. She has been born in 1873 as daughter of the 7th Lord of Chiang Mai. During a visit in Bangkok she met King Chulalongkorn, who took her as one of his concubines in 1886. After the king had passed away she returned to Chiang Mai and built her residence: Phra Tamnak Darapirom (Darapirom Pavilion). She was also interested in farming and had a farm for experiments, called "Suan Jao Sabuy". She planted also roses, a pink one got the name Chulalongkorn. After she had died Chulalongkorn University purchased the palace.
