Vaṅkagiri, °pabbata, °tapabbata

A mountain in Himavā to which Vessantara was banished with his family.

It was thirty leagues from the Ceta country and sixty leagues from Jetuttara, the way passing through Suvaṇṇagiritāla, over the river Kontimāra, through Arañjaragiri, Dunnivittha, northwards beyond Gandhamādana, over Mt. Vipula, across the Ketumatī River, through Mount Nālika and the Mucalinda Lake (Cyp.i.9; J.vi.514, 518, 519).

Vessantara and his family lived there in a hermitage built by Vissakamma at Sakka’s suggestion (J.vi.520). Sañjaya later built a road, eight furlongs (usabha) wide, from Jetuttara to Vaṅka. J.vi.580.
