Kappūra-pariveṇa is the name of a building built by Dāṭhopatissa II (659-667) and forms part of the Abhayagiri-vihāra temple complex situated in Anurādhapura.—The Kappūra or Kapārā-pariveṇa was built by Dāṭhopatissa II. Aggabodhi IV (667-683) added a Pāsāda and Sena I (833-853) built a cell. Inscriptions of the 10th century refer to Maha-Kapārā and Kuḍā-kapārā Piriveṇ and to the Kapārāmula fraternity at Abhayagiri-vihāra. Kassapa V (914-923) built for them the Silāmeghapabbata or Salamey-vanpavu-vihāra. The Pubbārāma or Purvaram-vihāra belonged to the Kapārā fraternity. An inscription of Mahinda V (982-993) names the Kapārā-ārāma and identifies the site. The daughter of Vijayabāhu I (1055-1110) built a massive Image House in the Kappūramūlā-vihāra.

The Abhayagiri-vihāra complex (including Kappūra-pariveṇa) was founded in March, B.C. 89, by king Vaṭṭagāmaṇi Abhaya who demolished a Nigaṇṭha (Jain) shrine called Titthārāma, built by Paṇḍukābhaya in the 4th century B.C., and erected, on its site, a vihāra of 12 cells.
