Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kutūhalasālā Sutta:Vacchagotta asks the Buddha how his teaching on the subject of rebirth differs from that of other teachers; for example,of Pūrana Kassapa.The Buddha explains that,according to his own teaching,rebirth comes only to a being who has fuel,the fuel being craving (S.iv.398f).

The discussion arises out of a conversation which,according to Vacchagotta,took place among paribbājakas in the Kutūhalasālā.

Buddhaghosa says (DA.ii.369; MA.ii.694) that there was no special place of that name; any place where discussions were held could be so called.See also D.i.179.
