Tiyaggala-pokkharaṇī

A lake in Himavā (J.v.415; DA.i.164). The river flowing from the eastern side of Anotatta, after having travelled along a rocky bed for sixty leagues, falls through the air for a distance of sixty leagues, on to the rock Tiyaggala.

The column of water is three quarters of a league in width and, as a result of the impact, the rock is hollowed out into a lake, the Tiyaggala-pokkharaṇī, fifty leagues wide. SNA.ii.439; AA.ii.760; UdA.302, etc.
