Mahavansa/Chapter 10 mentions the the Consecrating of Pandukabhaya....Thus from that time onward that youthful princess who was so rich in virtues and merit was called by the name Suvannapali. And the prince took the maiden and mounted his waggon and fared onward, fearless, and surrounded by a mighty army. When her father heard this he despatched all his soldiers, and they came and gave battle and returned, defeated by the others; at that place (afterwards) a village was built called Kalahanagara. When her five brothers heard this they (also) departed to make war. And all those did Canda the son of Pandula slay; Lohitavahakhanda was their battle-field. With a great host Pandukabhaya marched from thence to the further shore of the Ganga toward the Dola-mountain.
