1. Cittalatāvana. A pleasance, five
hundred leagues in extent, in Tāvatimsa. It came into being through the good
deeds performed by Māgha's wife,
Cittā (DhA.i.271-5; J. i.202). It is said
(VvA.94) that the place was so called not only because of its association with
Cittā, but also because there grew in it various creepers bearing many coloured
flowers. In the pleasance is born the Āsāvatī creeper which blossoms only once
in a thousand years. ThagA.i.365; J. iii.250.
2. Cittalatāvana. A park laid out by Parakkamabāhu 1. Cv.lxxix.7.
