Commander Lankapura had to wage a fierce battle with the Chola soldiers. Our chronicles state that the Chola soldiers, when assembled, spread to a distance four guavas (eight miles) in extent. But even in this battle, the Sinhala army won. They succeeded in capturing a few Chola leaders too. The Sinhala soldiers burnt a number of cities that belonged to the Cholas. Madamanamekkudi, Manamekkudi and Madakkudi were some of the villages which were plundered and burnt.
