Iṭṭhakāvati

A village in Magadha, mentioned, together with Dīgharājī, as the residence of the Saṃsāramocaka heretics. Nearby was the Aruṇavatī-vihāra, where Sāriputta once stayed with a company of monks. The village had retained its name for five hundred years (PvA.67).

The Petavatthu (pp.12‑13) contains the story of a woman of Iṭṭhakāvatī who was born as a peta.
