A thūpa built in the Brahma-world by Ghatīkāra, enshrining the garments worn by the Buddha at the time of his Renunciation.

It was built of gems and was twelve yojanas high (Dāthāvamsa, vs.35).

Among the wonders performed by Bhaddaji one was to carry it on his outstretched palm and show it to the multitude. Mhv.xxxi.11; MT.562.
