Talaṅga

A locality in Sri Lanka, perhaps in Piyaṅgudīpa. It is known chiefly as having been the residence of the elder Dhammadinna. Mhv.xxxii.52; VbhA.389, 489; Vism.392, 834.

It may be the place mentioned in the Saddhammasaṅgaha (p.88) as the residence of Mahādhammadinna, under the name of Talaṅgaratissa-pabbata (elsewhere (MT.606, n.2) called Vālaṅgatissapabbata). There was a cave in it called Devarakkhitalena.

According to the Majjhimanikāya Commentary (i.149 f), Talaṅgaratissa-pabbata was in Rohaṇa, and between it and Tissamahārāma lay the monasteries of Haṅkana and Cittala-pabbata. v.l. Talaṅka, Tālaṅkara, Tālaṅganagara.
