Chātapabbata:A mountain,slightly over two yojanas to the south-east of Anurādhapura.At the foot was a bamboo-grove in which grew three bamboo-stems,each being a waggon-pole in girth - known as latāyatthi,kusumayatthi and sakunayatthi - because of Devānampiyatissa’s good fortune (Mhv.xi.10; Dpv.xi.15,19; Sp.i.74.For an explanation of these yatthis see IHQ.vi.571ff).Saddhātissa afterwards built a vihāra there,called the Chātavihāra (MT.300).The Anguttara Commentary (i.15) has a reference to a novice dwelling in Chātapabbata who came to grief after hearing a woman’s voice.
