Puradeva

A god, evidently the tutelary deity of Anurādhapura.

There was a shrine erected to him within the precincts of the Mahāvihāra. Near this shrine a battle took place between Duṭṭhagāmaṇī and Bhalluka. Kaṇḍula considered it a lucky spot and led Duṭṭhagāmaṇī’s forces up to it (Mhv.xxv. 87).

The shrine was to the north of the Mahāsusāna. MT. 486.
