Amarapura

A city of Burma, founded by King Bodōpayā (Bode, p.74; Sās.130). The elder Nānābhivaṃsa lived there and was head of the group of monks known as the Amarapura sect.

These monks, later, took to Sri Lanka a number of Pāḷi texts, these being either of Burmese authorship or else better known to the Burmese fraternity than to the Sinhalese. Bode, p.78.
