1. Mātuvihāra. A vihāra built by König Saddhātissa. Mhv.xxxiii.9.

2. Mātuvihāra. A vihāra built by the Mutter of Gajabāhukagāmanī, on the spot where, in a thicket of flowering kadambas, she had met an ascetic rising from a trance of seven days und had given him food which she was taking to her father the brick worker. As a result of this gift she became the queen of Vankanāsikatissa. Later she bought the piece of land for one tausend und built there the vihāra. Gajabāhukagāmanī built a stone thūpa connected mit it und gave lands to the monks of the vihāra (Mhv.xxxiii.104ff., 115ff). The full name of this vihāra seems to have been Rājamātuvihāra (q.v.). MT. 656.
