  • Nandigāma

A village, evidently near Kacchakatittha, on the Mahāvālukanadī (MT.472). There was once a Tamil stronghold there, guarded by Nandika. Dutthagāmanī killed Nandika and captured the fort (Mhv.Xxv.14). Later, Subha erected a vihāra there (Ibid.,xxxv.58.).

The stronghold is also mentioned in the account of the campaigns of Parakkamabāhu I. Cv.lxxii.44.
