1. Uggata - See Ugga (4).
2. Uggata - A khattiya of the city of Sumangala, father of Sujata Buddha. J.i.38; Bu.xiii.20.
3. Uggata - The Kalinga king who, with Bhimaratha, king of Sanjayanti, and Atthaka, king of Hastinapura, sought the Bodhisatta Sarabhanga to learn from him where the kings Kalabu, Nalikira, Ajjuna and Dandaki had been born after the destruction of themselves and their kingdoms as a result of their ill treatment of holy men. J.v.135ff.
Their story is given in the Sarabhanga Jataka (q.v.).
The scholiast of the Jataka (J.v.137) takes Uggata to be not the name of the Kalinga king but a descriptive epithet, and explains it by saying cando viya suriyo viya ca pakato pannato.
The Mahavastu (iii.364f), however, definitely mentions Ugga as the name of the king, in the same way as Bhimaratha and Asthamaka (Atthaka), and gives the capitals of the two latter as Sanjayanti and Hastinapura respectively.
4. Uggata - King during the time of Sobhita Buddha. He built a vihara named Surinda at Sunandavati and another named Dhammaganarama at Mekhala and dedicated them to the Buddha and the Order.
