A village in the vicinity of Bhaddiya-
During his last tour the Buddha crossed the river at Pāṭaligāma, went on to Koṭigāma, and remained in that village teaching to the monks. Hearing that the Buddha was there, Ambapālī and hosts of Licchavī came from Vesāli to visit him, and Ambapālī gave him a meal. From Koṭigāma the Buddha went to Ñātika (Vin.i.230 f; D.ii.90 f).
Buddhaghosa says (DA.ii.542; iii.856) that the village was so called because it was built near the dome (koṭi or thūpikā) of Mahāpanāda’s palace.
According to the Saṃyuttanikāya (v.431), Koṭigāma was a village of the Vajjī .
