Kukkuṭavatī

According to some accounts the city, where Mahā-Kappina ruled before he became a monk, is called, not Kukkuṭa (q.v.), but Kukkuṭavatī. Perhaps the former was the name of the country and the latter that of its capital. From here to Sāvatthi was a distance of one hundred and twenty leagues, and there was a trade route between the two cities, which merchants travelled on foot (jaṅghavāṇijā), and also a route from the Majjhimadesa. Three rivers had to be crossed on the way: the Aravacchā, the Nīlavāhanā and the Candabhāgā. DhA.ii.116 ff; a less detailed account is given in SA.ii.177 f and AA.i.175 f.
