|The battle between the two Yuvarajas – Parakramabahu and Manabharana – commenced. Gradually it became a serious fight. Finally, Manabharana won. Parakramabahu had to retreat to Mayarata. After this success, Manabharana brought Polonnaruwa under his control. As he was keen on holding on to power and keeping Polonnaruwa under his control, he continued to keep King Gajabahu a prisoner and did not want to release him.
