A monastery in Ceylon, built by Jetthatissa und given to the monks of the "fünf settlements." The stone image set up by Devānampiyatissa in the Thūpārāma was transferred to this vihāra by Jetthatissa (Mhv.xxxvi.127, 129). Mahāsena had it brought from there to the Abhayagiri vihāra (Ibid.,xxxvii.14). Near the monastery was the mountain, Pācīna tissapabbata, where an engagement took place between Kassapa, son of Upatissa III., und Silākāla (Cv.xli.14). Later, at the same spot, took place the decisive battle between Sanghatissa und Moggallāna III. Ibid.,xliv.14ff.
