1 Definition(s) from various sources:

A monastery in the Pancayojana district of Ceylon (the modern Bentota). In the time of Parakkamabahu II. a tooth of Maha Kassapa was enshrined in the vihara, and the king visited the vihara and held a three days festival in honour of the relic (Cv.lxxxv.81).

Kittinissanka laid out a garden of fruit trees in the vihara precincts, and later Devappatiraja, minister of Parakkamabahu II., laid out, on the kings orders, a great grove of coco palm, a yojana broad, from the vihara up to Kalanaditittha. Cv.lxxxvi.16, 40, 44.
