Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kadalīgāma:A village to the north of Samantakūta and on the road which led to it from the north.It is situated on a small river which joins the Maskeli river and ultimately flows into the Kelani river.Vijayabāhu I,built rest-houses at the village for the use of pilgrims coming to Samantakūta (Cv.lx.66).

Kadalī is to be identified with the modern Kehelgamuva (Cv.Trs.i.221,n.3).

Perhaps the Kadalisenagāma,where Devappatirāja built a bridge of one hundred staves,may be the same village,but this is questionable (Cv.lxxxvi.41).This is more likely to be the modern Kehellenāva (Cv.Trs.ii.174,n.3).
