Veṭhadīpa

A brahmin settlement, the chieftain of which claimed a part of the Buddha’s relics; having obtained the relics, he built a thūpa over them (D.ii.165, 167; Bu.xxviii.3).

According to the Dhammapada Commentary (Sāmāvatī-vatthu), the kings of Veṭhadīpa and Allakappa once lived in intimate friendship. (DhA.i.161; see J.R.A.S. 1907, p.1049).
