Cetiyā

A yakkhinī who lived in the Dhūmarakkha mountain near Tumbariyaṅgana.

Paṇḍukābhaya, hearing of her, tried to capture her, but succeeded only after a very long and strenuous chase, in which she assumed the form of a mare. He rode her into battle, where she helped him in various ways (Mhv.x.53 ff). The Mahāvaṃsa-Ṭīkā, Vamsatthappakāsinī, (p.289) says she was the wife of the yakkha Jutindhara, who fell in the battle of Sirīsavatthu.
