  • Kampilla (Kampillaka, Kampilliya)

A city in Uttarapañcāla, and probably its capital. Dummukha was once its king (J.iii.379; J. ii.214; also Mtu.i.283).

Sometimes (E.g.,J.iii.79; iv.396; v.21; vi.391; 464) Kampilla is spoken of as being a kingdom, of which Uttarapañcala was a city.

Once Alīnasattu is spoken of as Kampilla because he was the king of the city of the same name. J. v.34; see also Rāmāyana i.34.
