Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Bhagalavatī:A place in Uttarakuru where the Yakkhas assemble.

The Dīgha Nikāya (D.iii.201) speaks of it as a hall (sabhā),while the Sutta Nipāta Commentary (SNA.i.197) says it is a mountain in Himavā where the devas assemble every month for eight days in order to settle disputes.The Yakkha leaders also attend these assemblies.

The Sumangalavilāsinī (DA.iii.967),however,says that it is a jewelled pavilion (ratanamandapa) twelve leagues in extent,on the banks of the Dharanī Lake.It is surrounded by a creeper named Bhagalavatī,hence,probably,its name.
