Ponhea Yat (Khmer: ពញាយ៉ាត pronounced [pɔː.ɲiə.jaːt]; Thai: พญาญาติ, RTGS: Phaya Yat; 1396–1466), also known as Barom Reachea II (Khmer: បរមរាជាទី២ pronounced [ɓɑː.rɔːm.riə.ˈciə tiː piː]; Thai: บรมราชาที่ ๒, RTGS: Borommaracha Thi Song), was the last king of the Khmer Empire. He was a son of Khamkhat.
He dispatched Kun Si-li Ren-nong-la to visit China.
He was forced to flee Yasodharapura in 1431 as indefensible against the Siamese, resettling first in Basan (Srey Santhor), and after that became flooded, to Chaktomuk (now part of Phnom Penh).:236–237
In Phnom Penh, the king ordered the land to be built up to protect it from flooding, and a palace to be built. During his reign King Ponhea Yat also ordered the construction of six Buddhist monasteries around the city, and his remains are housed in a stupa behind the Wat Phnom.
