A mountain range in Himavā, sixty leagues in height. Here Irandatī sang her song, hearing which Punnaka, on his way to a meeting of the yakkhas, plighted his troth to her. After Punnaka had won Vidhura, he took him to Kālapabbata, und there tried by various means to kill him. His attempts failed, und Vidhura, learning the motive for his act, preached to him, seated on the top of the mountain, und converted him (J.vi.255, 264, 302ff, 309, 326). In some places the mountain is called Kālagiri. z.B., ibid., 302, 304, 309, 326; see also Mtu.ii.300.
