Manihīra

1. Manihīra.– A vihāra built by Mahāsena. Mhv.xxxvil.40.

2. Manihīra.– A reservoir built by Mahāsena (Mhv.xxxvii.47). Aggabodhi built a canal leading out of it (Cv.xlii.34); so did Sena II. (Cv.li.72). Among the canals flowing into the reservoir was the Tilavatthuka, restored by Vijayabāhu I. (Cv.lx.53). Parakkamabāhu I rebuilt the reservoir (Cv.lxxix.31), and constructed the Kālindī Canal to carry away the overflow from the south side (Cv.xlii.54). It was near this reservoir that Saṅghatissa was taken prisoner by the followers of Moggallāna III. Cv.xliv.30.
