Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Vijayārāma:A garden in Anurādhapura,through which the boundary of the Mahāvihāra passed (Mbv.p.136).

A monastery was built there (probably later),which came to be called the Vijayārāma-vihāra.Once,an arahant monk,teaching a kammatthāna to two monks,spoke of samuddha instead of samudda.One of the monks pointed out his error,and was sent by the arahant to the Mahāvihāra with a message that he had paid more attention to letters than to their meaning.The monk went to the Mahāvihāra and later attained Nibbāna,after solving various difficult questions in the presence of the assembly.MA.ii.827.
