Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kakutthā:A river near Kusinārā in which the Buddha bathed and from which he drank water before entering Kusinārā for his parinibbāna.

On its bank was a mango-grove where the Buddha rested awhile on a robe spread for him by Cundaka; there he reassured Cunda,telling him that no blame attached to him for having provided the Buddha with the meal which was to be his last (D.ii.129,134f; Ud.viii.5; UdA.402f).

It is said (DA.ii.571) that when the Buddha bathed in the river,its banks and all the fishes it contained became golden.
