A vihāra in Sri Lanka. In it once lived fifty monks who agreed on the full-moon day of Āsāḷha not to talk to each other until they became Arahants. Their goal was reached within a month (DA.i.190; SA.iii.155; SnA.i.57; VibhA.353; MA.i.209 f).
This vihāra is very probably identical with Galambatittha (q.v.)
