Ratu Boko is estimated have been used by people in the 8th century during the reign of Rakai Panangkaran king of Medang kingdom or Mataram Hindu of the House of Sailendra. From the pattern of the remaining buildings laying, allegedly this site was former king’s palace.

The Remnants of settlements are also found around the site. This site is nominated to UNESCO to become a World Heritage Site since 1995.
