  • Catudvāra Jātaka (No.439)

Contains the story of Mittavindaka.

The Jātaka probably derives its name from the fact that the Ussada-niraya, where Mittavindaka was destined to suffer, looked like a city with four gates, surrounded by a wall.

For the introductory story see the Gijjha Jātaka.

The story is sometimes called the Mahā Mitta-vindaka Jātaka. E.g., J. i.363; iii.206.
