Kāḷacampā

A city in Aṅga; it was sixty leagues from Mithilā, with which it was connected by a cart-road (J.vi.31 f). To Kāḷacampā came sages from the Himavā to procure salt and sour condiments (J.vi.256). There lived Puṇṇaka’s relations (J.vi.274). Varuṇa, the Nāga king, tells Vidhūra that he (Varuṇa) and his wife were once inhabitants of Kāḷacampā (J.vi.317). Kāḷacampā is probably another name for Campā (q.v.) In fact, the name Campā is used more than once in reference to Kāḷacampā (e.g., J.vi.32). According to the Aṅguttaranikāya Commentary (AA.i.131), Soṇa Kolivisa was born in Kāḷacampā; the Theragāthā Commentary (ThagA.i.544), however, speaks of his birthplace as Campā.
