Palāyi Jātaka:Once the Bodhisatta was king of Takkasilā.Brahmadatta,king of Benares,marched on his city with a large army,hoping to capture it; but on seeing the towers on the city gates,he took fright and fled.

The story was told in reference to a mendicant who loved arguing.He could find no one to contradict him until he came to Sāvatthi,where was the Buddha.Forthwith he set off for Jetavana; but on seeing the gate towers,he fled (J.ii.216ff).See also Dutiya Palāyi Jātaka.
