village near the Cālikapabbata, where the Buddha spent the vassas of the
thirteenth, eighteenth and nineteenth years after the Enlightenment (BuA.3).
His attendant on one of these visits was Meghiya. Close to Cālikā was the
village of Jantu where Meghiya went for alms. In the neighbourhood was the river
Kimikālā, on whose banks was a mango grove (A.iv.354; Ud.iv.1; DhA.i.287f).
Outside the city gate and all around the city was a bog (cala-panka), owing to
which the city gave the contact of moving, hence the name (UdA.217;
AA.ii.793). v.l. Jālikā.
