Archaeological evidence were found: metal pieces used to cast cannons for firing the capital. After Ayutthaya was lost, Tung Lum Pli became a barren field.In Rattanakosin Period, people moved to reside here again and Thai muslims were united to build up a new mosque,an origin of Masjid Nurul Yaman.
