A tank in Anurādhapura, north of the royal palace, in der Zeit von Devānampiyatissa.

When Mahinda scattered flowers on it the earth trembled, und Mahinda prophesied that it would become the Jantāghara-pokkhoranī situated to the east of the gateway of the Kālapāsāna-parivena.

It had disappeared by the time the Mahāvamsa Tīkā was written (MT.344f).

The sīmā of the Mahāvihāra passed through the tank. Mbv.135, 136.
