It is called the 'Loha Prasada' in Sinhala. King Dutugamunu in the 2nd century BC, is said to have built it and had been seven storied building with a 1000 rooms which had a roof of copper (from which the building takes its name). The Brazen Palace had been destroyed in a fire about 15 years after it was built. Although restoration work had taken place from time to time, it had also been destroyed regularly. All that remains today (of the old construction) is 1600 stone pillars on which the original building had stood on.
