City : Anuradhapura
Country : Sri Lanka
Type : Historical Place
Information : The Brazen Palace or Loha Prasada - in reality the monks’ quarters - gets its curious name from the fact that it originally had a copper-tiled roof.But it was made in to a palace by King Duthagamini for the monks of the Mahavihara to live in. Duthagamini built a nine storied building with a thousand rooms, which had a roof of copper tiles. From which the building takes its name Tragically, this splendid building was of wood and it was burnt down in a fire, probably caused by coconut oil lamp only fifteen years after it was built. Saddhatissa, Duthagamini’s brother rebuilt the palace to a height of seven stories. The brazen palace has been destroyed several times and rebuilt. The present ground floor of 1,600 pillars (40×40) bears witness to its former grandeur. These columns are the remains of the restoration work of Parakramabahu the Great.
