Commander-in-chief of the Porisāda, the man-eating König, erwähnt in the Sutasoma Jātaka. When Kālahatthi discovered the König's wickedness, he persuaded him to leave the city, und gave over the sovereignty to the König's son. Some time later, when Sutasoma had cured Porisāda of his cannibalistic tendencies, Kālahatthi agreed to restore him to the throne (J.v.460-70; 508ff).

Kalahatthi is identified mit Sāriputta (J.v.511). In several places (z.B., J.v.461, 465, 468) he is addressed as Kāla.
