Pali Word Grammar from Pali Myanmar Dictionary
kapotakandara: kapotakandara(thī,pu)
Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kapotakandara:A grotto,probably near Rājagaha,where,later,a vihāra,called the Kapotakondara-vihāra,was built.The grotto was at one time the residence of a large number of pigeons (kapotā),hence the name (UdA.244).

On one occasion Sāriputta,having recently shaved his head,was seated there wrapt in samādhi,and a yakkha,passing overhead with his friend to an assembly of yakkhas,yielded,despite the warning of his friend,to the temptation to give a knock on the monk’s shining head.The yakkha immediately fell down and was swallowed up in the fires of hell.Sāriputta had but a slight headache after the blow,which was,it is said,heavy enough to crush an elephant (Ud.39f; Thag.vs.998f; PsA.494).

According to the Visuddhi-magga (p.380),Sāriputta entered into a trance at the very moment the blow was dealt him.
