Ambavāpi is the name of an ancient tank that existed since the ancient kingdom of Anurādhapura, Ceylon (Sri Lanka).—The construction of Mahaṭombuva or Māṭombu tank is ascribed to Jeṭṭhatissa I (263-275) and to Aggabodhi II (604-614). Aggabodhi IV (667-683) built the Māṭambiya Practising House. The names Mahaṭombuva, Māṭombu and Māṭambiya appear to be preserved in modern Māṭombuva Korale and Tulāna. To the Practising House were assigned:—(i) Ambavāpi at Būkakalla; (ii) Tantavāyikacāṭika village; and (iii) Niṭṭhilaveṭṭhi village.
