Karambiya

A seaport. Thither came a man, saved from a wreck, without any clothes, who set up as a naked ascetic and became known by the name of Karambiya (v.l. Karamhiya). Among his followers was a Nāga-king, Paṇḍara, and also a Garuḷa-king. At the latter’s request, he persuaded Paṇḍara to tell him how the Nāgā escaped destruction by the Garuḷa, and later he divulged the secret to the Garuḷa-king. The ascetic’s treachery was discovered, and when he swore his innocence his head split in seven and he was dragged to Avīci.

The story is given in the Paṇḍaranāgarāja Jātaka (J.v.75 ff), and is referred to in the Milindapañha (p.201).
