Galambatittha in Theravada glossary... « previous · [G] · next »

A village in Ceylon, which contained a vihara and a thupa. King Vasabha repaired the thupa, built an uposatha house, and endowed land for the maintenance of lamps in the house (Mhv.xxxv.85). The village is probably identical with that mentioned elsewhere as Galamba titthagama (Cv.lxxv.7). In that case, it was in Rohana and was the scene of a battle in the campaign of Parakkamabahu I.

The Commentaries (E.g., SNA.i.57; VibhA.353) contain references to a group of fifty monks dwelling in Galambatittha Vihara, who took a vow never to address each other until they attained arahantship.

See s.v. Kalambatittha.
