Abstract: The sources contribute to write history (Perera S. Lakshman,2001:46). Sīhalavatthuppakaraṇa is one of the oldest surviving sources, has gained its life due to the untiring efforts of Rev. Polvattē Buddhadatta. Initially, a Burmese copy of the Sīhalavatthuppakaraṇa has found from Burma and later on its Pāli copy, as well has been found in the Mahākappinna Mudalindārāmaya in Välithara in Sri Lanka. Following the due clarification, Rev. Polvattē Buddhadatta is credited to have published this particular book. It can be speculated that this book has been written during the reign of king Vattagāmiṇiabaya (104-67 B.C.E). This can be illustrated as one of the oldest books available right at the moment and further, the way in which the Pāli language is used in this particular book proves the above fact. This book recalls us where Pāli, as a language was not highly used for the purpose of writing. Further, the book seems to have a lot of grammatical errors.
