Pubbavideha

The eastern of the four continents (mahādīpā) that compose a Cakkavāḷa (A.i.227; v.59).

It is seven thousand leagues in extent (SNA. 443; 8,000 says BuA.112) and its chief tree is the Acacia (Sirīsa) (AA.i.264; MA.ii.947; Vism.i.206, etc.)

It is the first continent visited by a Cakkavatti when on tour (BuA.131). See also Videha.
