Parakkamapura

1. Parakkamapura.– A town built by Parakkamabāhu I. It was evidently another name for Pulatthinagara, which Parakkambāhu laid out and embellished in various ways. Cv.lxxiv.15; see also lxxii.151; for the identification see Cv.Trs.ii.22, n.1.

2. Parakkamapura.– A stronghold in South India, built at Kuṇḍukāla by the general Laṅkāpura. The Chronicle contains a vivid account of a battle, which took place just outside the gates of the stronghold between the forces of Laṅkāpura and of Kulasekhara. However, no more is heard of the stronghold; it may have been abandoned in favour of another. Cv.lxxvi.121, 133, 147, 150.
