Khandacela

A monastery (probably in Sri Lanka), the residence of Padhāniya Thera. While the elder was once listening to the Ariyavaṃsa in the Kanikāra-padhānaghara (meditation hall) in the monastery, he was bitten by a snake, but bearing the pain in silence, concentrated his mind on the discourse. The poison sank to earth and he became an Arahant. MA.i.65.
