The original name of the district was Nakhon Noi. In 1916, he was renamed Tha Ruea to commemorate an important historical event.

When the hunter Bun in the province of Saraburi the footprint of the Buddha took place, King Songtham went with his royal barge on the Pasak River at that point to pay homage to the footprint. He parked his boat here in today's district, and continued his journey overland. This pilgrimage has since been a royal tradition, as well as later kings traveled in this way to Wat Phra Phutthabat to prove the footprint of their reverence.

The word Thai means Tha Ruea boat landing.
