Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kukkutavatī:According to some accounts the city,whereMahā Kappina ruled before he became a monk,is called,not Kukkuta,but Kukkutavatī.Perhaps the former was the name of the county and the latter that of its capital.

From here to Sāvatthi was a distance of one hundred and twenty leagues,and there was a trade route between the two cities which merchants travelled on foot (janghavānijā),and also a route from theMajjhimadesa.Three rivers had to be crossed on the way:the Aravacchā,the Nīlavāhanā and the Candabhāgā.DhA.ii.116ff; a less detailed account is given in SA.ii.177f and AA.i.175f.
