Thullakoṭṭhita

1. Thullakoṭṭhita.– A township in the Kuru country. It was the birthplace of Raṭṭhapāla, and it was there that the Buddha stayed during a tour among the Kurū (M.ii.54; ThagA.ii.30; AA.i.144). It received its name from the fact of its granaries being always full (thullakoṭṭhaṃ, paripuṇṇa­koṭṭhāgāraṃ). It had plenteous crops. MA.ii.722; also Avadāna S.ii.118.

2. Thullakoṭṭhita.– A city in the time of Nārada Buddha, who taught there to Bhaddasāla and Vijitamitta, afterwards appointed as his chief disciples. BuA.154.
