Bhīmatittha-vihāra

A monastery in the Pañcayojana district of Sri Lanka (the modern Bentota). In the time of Parakkamabāhu II a tooth of Mahā-Kassapa was enshrined in the vihāra, and the king visited the vihāra and held a three days’ festival in honour of the relic (Cv.lxxxv.81).

Kittinissaṅka laid out a garden of fruit trees in the vihāra precincts, and later Devappatirāja, minister of Parakkamabāhu II, laid out, on the king’s orders, a great grove of coco palm, a league wide, from the vihāra up to Kālanadītittha. Cv.lxxxvi.16, 40, 44.
