A cetiya in Rohaṇa in South Sri Lanka, not far from Cittalapabbata-
There were probably two cetiyas of the same name, one being in Rohaṇa and the other to the east of Anurādhapura. It is the latter which is mentioned in the thirty-
Vaṭṭagāmaṇi, going up with his queen to the Ākāsacetiya, saw his minister, Kapisīsa, who had just come down from the cetiya, where he had been sweeping the courtyard, sitting by the road; because he did not fling himself down before the king, the latter slew him in anger.
This Ākāsacetiya was near Acchagalla-
It may be that Ākāsacetiya was a common name for any vihāra built on the summit of a rock, for the Commentaries (AA.i.375; MA.ii.955) speak also of an Ākāsacetiya at Sumanagiri (Sumanakūṭa) at which the Tamil general Dīghajantu offered a red silken robe.
