A cetiya in Ceylon, erected, according to tradition, by Devānampiyatissa (Codrington, op. cit., 28), on a spot consecrated by the Buddha on his third visit to Ceylon (Sp.i.89). It was restored by Jetthatissa. It is, perhaps, the monastery attached to this cetiya that is mentioned in the Majjhima Commentary (MA.ii.1024) as Mutingana. Maliyadeva Thera preached there the Cha Cakka Sutta and sixty monks became arahants.
