An inscription found on the stone slab at the upper level of the flight of steps of the building identifies the building as Raja Vaishyabhujanga Mandapa‚ the council chamber of King Parakramabahu the Great (1153-1186 A.D.). It has three consecutive tiers faced with decorated stone tablets. The roof supported on stone pillars of the upper most the probably had wooden members and covered with clay tiles. The investigations have revealed that the present form of the building may have been a result of a renovation‚ probably during the Dambadeniya period (13th century A.D.).
