Mahavansa/Chapter 36 tells....After the death of Bhatika Tissa (his younger brother) Kanittha Tissa reigned eighteen years in the island of Lankä. Since he was well pleased with the thera Mahanaga in the Bhutarama he built for him in splendid fashion the Ratanapasada in the Abhayagiri. Moreover, he built in the Abhayagiri a wall and a great parivena and a great parivena besides in the (vihara) called Manisoma. In that place he built a temple for the cetiya and in like manner for the Ambatthala-thupa; and (he ordered) the restoration of the temple in Nagadipa. Doing away with the boundary of the Mahavihara, the king built there the row of cells (called) Kukkutagiri with all things provided. In the Mahävihãra the ruler of men built twelve great four-sided pasadas, admirable to see and beautiful, aria he added a mantling to the thupa of the Dakkhinavihara, and a refectory besides, doing away with the boundary of the Mahameghavana. And moving the wall of the Mahavihära to the side, he also made a road leading to the Dakkhinavihara. He built the Bhutaramavihara and the Ramagonaka, and the arama of Nandatissa besides.

भूतलय (AS, p.675): महाभारत में वर्णित एक अपवित्र स्थान-- 'युगंधरे दधिप्राश्य उषित्वा चाच्युतस्थले, तद्वद्भूतलये स्नातवा वस्तुमर्हसि' वनपर्व 129,9. धर्मशास्त्र के अनुसार इस दूषित ग्राम में रहने मात्र से प्रजापत्य-व्रत करने की आवश्यकता थी-- 'प्रोष्य भूतलये विप्र:प्रजापत्यं व्रतं चरेत्'. श्री चि. वि. वैद्य के मत में यह स्थान यमुना नदी के तट पर था क्योंकि वन पर्व 129,13 में इसी प्रसंग के अंतर्गत प्लक्षावतरण का वर्णन है जिसे 'यमुनातीर्थमुत्तम्' कहा गया है.
