An Arahant. Thirty-one world-cycles ago he built a house of reeds near Bhārika (Hārita) in Himavā, for the Pacceka Buddha Nārada, thatched it with reeds and made a covered walk nearby. When he was born in Tāvatiṃsa he had a palace sixty leagues in extent (Ap.ii.439). He is probably identical with Valliya Thera (ThagA.i.247). The same verses are attributed to Nalagārika Thera.
