A mountain in the Malayarattha in
Ceylon. Vijayabahu III. built on its summit a town which he made his capital.
For a time the Tooth Relic and the Alms Bowl were there (Cv.lxxxi.15, 29) but
were later removed to Billagiri (Cv.lxxxii.7ff). Parakkamabāhu II. also used
Jambuddoni as his capital, but Vijayabāhu IV. moved the seat of government to
Pulatthipura (Cv.lxxxx.13). Later, we find Bhuvanekabāhu I. being crowned in
Jambuddoni, though his capital was in Subhagiri (Cv.xc.30). Vijayabāhu III.
built the Vijayasundarārāma (q.v.) on Jambuddoni.
