A market town near Kosambī. The Buddha went there and was warned by cowherds and others not to approach Ambatittha as a fierce Nāga dwelt there.
Sāgata Thera, hearing this, went to Ambatittha and subdued the Nāga, afterwards rejoining the Buddha at Bhaddavatikā (Vin.iv.108 f; J.i.360 f).
The town is probably identical with Bhaddavatī (q.v.), and was in the Cetiya Country. Vin.iv.108.
