India history and geogprahy

Tulāna is the name of an ancient locality that existed since the ancient kingdom of Anurādhapura, Ceylon (Sri Lanka).—The construction of Mahaṭombuva or Māṭombu tank is ascribed to Jeṭṭhatissa I (263-275) and to Aggabodhi II (604-614). Aggabodhi IV (667-683) built the Māṭambiya Practising House. The names Mahaṭombuva, Māṭombu and Māṭambiya appear to be preserved in modern Māṭombuva Korale and Tulāna. To the Practising House were assigned:—(i) Ambavāpi at Būkakalla; (ii) Tantavāyikacāṭika village; and (iii) Niṭṭhilaveṭṭhi village.
