Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names
According to some accounts the city, where Maha Kappina ruled before he became a monk, is called, not Kukkuta (q.v.), but Kukkutavati. Perhaps the former was the name of the county and the latter that of its capital. From here to Savatthi was a distance of one hundred and twenty leagues, and there was a trade route between the two cities which merchants travelled on foot (janghavanija), and also a route from the Majjhimadesa. Three rivers had to be crossed on the way: the Aravaccha, the Nilavahana and the Candabhaga. DhA.ii.116ff; a less detailed account is given in SA.ii.177f and AA.i.175f.
Theravāda is a major branch of Buddhism having the the Pali canon (tipitaka) as their canonical literature, which includes the vinaya-pitaka (monastic rules), the sutta-pitaka (Buddhist sermons) and the abhidhamma-pitaka (philosophy and psychology).
