Koṭṭhasāra

A village to the east of Pulatthipura. It was once the refuge of Vikkamabāhu II (Cv.lxi.43) and, again, of Gajabāhu (Cv.lxx.355). After Gajabāhu’s death his ministers took his body to Koṭṭhasāra, and the village became the headquarters of Mānābharaṇa (Cv.lxxi.6, 11). There was in the village a garrison for mercenary soldiers, specially occupied by the Keralā, and this garrison once revolted against Parakkamabāhu I (Cv.lxxiv.44).

Later, the Damiḷā, Māgha and Jayabāhu, set up a fortification there (Cv.lxxxiii.15; see also Cv.Trs.i.229, n.1). It was evidently a point of strategic importance.
