The cetiya built on the spot where the Buddha preached to Maniakkhika and his followers (Mhv.i.75f). According to tradition it enshrined the throne on which the Buddha sat, and has been a place of pilgrimage from that day to this (See, e.g., VibbA.295; MA.ii.701).

Vohārika-Tissa erected a parasol on the cetiya (Mhv.xxxvi.34). (See also Kalyāni-vihāra.)
