Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kimikālā:A river near Jantugāma.Meghiya Thera was attracted by a mango-grove on its banks and asked the Buddha’s permission to meditate there.Twice the Buddha refused; the third time he gave his permission.Meghiya went,but soon returned,finding that he could not concentrate his mind there.The river was evidently in the neighbourhood of Cālikā (A.iv.354f; ThagA.i.149; Ud.iv.1).



According to the Udāna Commentary (UdA.217),it was so called because it abounded in black worms (kālakimīnam bahulatāya).v.l.Kipillikā.
