From Old Khmer *prāsāda, prāsādda, prāsātra, prāsādha, °prāsāddha, braḥ sādha (temple or sanctuary having a high pinnacle); ultimately from Sanskrit प्रासाद (prāsāda, palace; terrace). Cognate with Burmese ပြာသာဒ် (prasad), Khmer ប្រាសាទ (praasaat), Lao ຜາສາດ (phā sāt), Mon ပြါသာတ်, and Shan ပျၢတ်ႈသၢတ်ႈ (pjāat sāat). Compare Pali pāsāda (mansion; palace).
