Parakkasamudda

1. Parakkasamudda.– A reservoir built by Parakkamabāhu I, by the enlargement of the Paṇḍavāpī. Cv.lxviii.40.

2. Parakkamasamudda.– A reservoir built by Parakkamabāhu I and attached to the river system of the Kāragaṅgā. It was, probably, in the neighbourhood of Pulatthipura and had many canals branching off: the Gambhīra, Hemavatī, Nīlavāhinī, Salalavatī, Vettavatī, Maṅgalagaṅgā, and Campā; and contained many sluices: Makara, Mālatīpuppha, Vettavatī, Dakkhiṇā, Maṅgala and Caṇḍī. The canal connecting it with the Kāragaṅgā was called the Ākāsagaṅgā. Cv.lxxix.26 f., 40 ff; see also Cv.Trs.ii.117, n.5.
