"Kaibon" was taken from words Ka-lbu-an, meaning that the palace was intended to Sultan's mother. When Sultan Muhammad Rafiuddin must run the government to change his father that was Sultan Muhammad Syafiudin, at that time he was just still 5 (five) month old, so to continue the government, Sultan Rafiudin mother that was Queen Aisyah replaced her son's position until he grew up. That is why the palace called Kaibon Palace. Located more or less I km from Banten Great Mosque or exactly located at Kroya village.
