Ambāṭakavana

v.l. Ambāḷavana.– A grove at Macchikāsaṇḍa, belonging to Cittagahapati. Being pleased with the elder Mahānāma of Macchikāsaṇḍa, Citta invited him to a meal, and after listening to his discourse, gave the grove to the Order. At the dedication of the gift the earth trembled. Later he built a splendid monastery there, the Ambāṭakārāma, for the use of monks from all parts (AA.i.209; DhA.ii.74). It became the residence of large numbers of monks, and discussions often took place there between Cittagahapati and the resident bhikkhus (S.iv.281‑97).

Among eminent Elders who visited the place were:

Behind Ambāṭaka was Migapathaka, which was Citta’s tributary village (SA.iii.93)
