Rohana (रोहण) is the southern and South-eastern part of Sri Lanka, mentioned in Mahavansha.




In Mahavansa

Mahavansa/Chapter 22 mentions about The Birth of Prince Gamani....WHEN he had slain Elara, Duttagamani became king. To show clearly how this came to pass the story in due order (of events) is this: King Devanampiyatissa's second brother, the vice-regent named Mahanaga, was dear to his brother. The king's consort, that foolish woman, coveted the kingship for her own son and ever nursed the wish to slay the vice-regent, and while he was making the tank called Taraccha she sent him a mango-fruit which she had poisoned and laid uppermost among (other) mango-fruits. Her little son who had gone with the vice-regent, ate the mango-fruit, when the dish was uncovered, and died therefrom. Upon this the vice-regent, with his wives, men and horses, went, to save his life, to Rohana.

In the Yatthalata-vihara his wife, who was with child, bore a son. He gave him his brother's name. Afterwards he came to Rohana and as ruler over the whole of Rohana the wealthy prince reigned in Mahagame. He founded the Nagamahavihara that bore his name; he founded also many (other) viharas, as the Uddhakandaraka (vihära) and so forth.

Mahavansa/Chapter 23 mentions- The Levying of the Warriors....A householder named Rohana, who was headman in the village of Kitti near the Kota-mountain, gave to the son who was born to him the name of the king Gothabbaya.

Mahavansa/Chapter 34 mentions about The Eleven Kings.... After the death of Bhatikaraja his younger brother named Mahadathika Maha Naga reigned twelve years, intent on works of merit of many kinds....In Kalayanakannika the ruler of men built the (vihara) called Maninagapabbata and the vihara which was called Kalanda, furthermore on the bank of the Kubukandariver the Samudda-vihara and in Huvacakannika the vihära that bore the name Culanagapabbata.
