India history and geography
Tīra (तीर) refers to a name-ending for place-names according to Pāṇini VI.1.135. Pāṇini also cautions his readers that the etymological meaning of place-names should not be held authoritative since the name should vanish when the people leave the place who gave their name to it.Source: archive.org: Ceylon Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society 1963
Tira or Tiragama is identified with Terigāma and represents an ancient village that existed since the ancient kingdom of Anurādhapura, Ceylon (Sri Lanka).—Near Kāsapabbata was the town Paṇa, also called Palonagara; this place is identical with Pajjotanagara which was named after Pajjota tank which Duṭṭhagāmaṇi built near Kāsapabbata. The Sīgiri Graffiti mention Polonaru. In an inscription of Vasabha (67-111) Palo-nakaraka tank in Tihalaka district and the assembly at Tiragama are mentioned. Aggabodhi II (604-614) built a Practising House at Palaṃnagara-vihāra. Tiragama appears to be identical with Terigāma ,southward of Anurādhapura, where Parakkamabāhu’s forces won decisive victory. Close to Kāsapabbata, Duṭṭhagāmaṇi built the tank Kulantavāpi or Kulatthavāpi or Kalatāvava (Kalatāvāva), present Kalattāva.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
