Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Pañhambamālaka:A place in Anurādhapura,where Devānampiyatissa offered Mahinda a mango,which he ate on the spot,and caused the seed to be planted.Immediately there sprouted from it a tall tree,bearing mangoes.This place later became the centre of distribution of various gifts to the monks (Mhv.xv.38).

After Mahinda’s death,the bier containing his body was placed here for a week,and many honours were shown to it prior to its cremation (Ibid.,xx.39).This is probably the same as Pañcambamālaka (q.v.).
