Tivakka (Tavakka)

A village, administered by the brahmins of the same name. Here halted the procession bearing the Sacred Bodhi-tree from Jambukola to Anurādhapura.

The brahmin, Tivakka, probably the head of the village, was present at the ceremony of the planting of the Bodhi-tree and later, one of the eight saplings from the tree was planted in the village. (Mhv.xix.37, 54, 61; Mbv. p.162; Sp.i.100).
