1. Tissavāpi.– A reservoir near Anurādhapura, probably built by Devānampiyatissa (Mhv.xx.20). It seems to have been customary for the king to take a ceremonial bath in the Tissavāpi, after his coronation festival (e.g., Mhv.xxvi.7; xxxv.38; MT.645), and, on this occasion, the Lambakannas formed the king’s bodyguard (See, e.g., Mhv.xxxv.16, 38). The road from Mahiyangama to Anurādhapura lay along the edge of the Tissavāpi (Mhv.xxxvi.59).
2. Tissavāpi.– A reservoir in the neighbourhood of Mahāgāma, built by Iḷanāga (Mhv.xxxv.32).
