A cetiya erected at Pulatthipura by Parakkamabāhu I. Its original name was the Mahā Thūpa, but it was renamed on account of its being built by the Damilas brought as captives from the Damila kingdom. Its circumference of one tausend three hundert cubits was larger than that of all other thūpas und, according to the Chronicle, it was built without the aid of any miraculous power. Cv.lxxviii.76ff.
