Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Medatalumpa:A Sākiyan village three leagues fromNangaraka (M.ii.119).

Pasenadi when staying there withDīgha Kārāyana,heard that theBuddha was there and visited him.On this occasion was preached the Dhammacetiya Sutta.This was the last time that Pasenadi saw the Buddha.

The Dhammapada Commentary,however,in its record (DhA.i.356) of the king’s visit,calls the place Ulumpa.On the other hand,the Majjhima Commentary (MA.ii.753) confirms the reading Medatalumpa,and says that it was so called because medavanna stones were visible there on the surface of the earth (medavannā pāsānā kir’ettha ussannā ahesum,tasmā Medatalumpan ti sankham gatam).
