A monastery (probably in Ceylon), the residence of Padhāniya Thera. While the Elder was once listening to the Ariya-vamsa in the Kanikārapadhānaghara in the monastery, he was bitten by a snake, but bearing the pain in silence, concentrated his mind on the sermon. The poison sank to earth and he became an arahant. MA.i.65.
