  • Uruvelamandala

A district in Rohana, in South Ceylon, where the ministers Bhūta, Rakkha and Kitti obtained a decisive victory over their enemies. This battle enabled them to get possession of the Buddha's Bowl and the Tooth Relic (Cv.lxxiv.125-6). Geiger thinks that the place was near the modern Monarāgala (Cv.Trs.ii.33, n.1).
