1. Uggata. See Ugga (4).
2. Uggata. A khattiya of the city of
Sumangala, father of Sujāta Buddha. J. i.38; Bu.xiii.20.
3. Uggata. The Kālinga king who, with
Bhīmaratha, king of Sañjayantī, and Atthaka, king of Hastināpura, sought the
Bodhisatta Sarabhanga to learn from him where the kings Kalābu, Nālikira, Ajjuna
and Dandakī had been born after the destruction of themselves and their kingdoms
as a result of their ill-treatment of holy men. J. v.135ff.
Their story is given in the Sarabhanga
The scholiast of the Jātaka (J.v.137)
takes Uggata to be not the name of the Kālinga king but a descriptive epithet,
and explains it by saying cando viya suriyo viya ca pākato paññāto.
The Mahāvastu (iii.364f), however,
definitely mentions Ugga as the name of the king, in the same way as Bhīmaratha
and Asthamaka (Atthaka), and gives the capitals of the two latter as Sañjayantī
and Hastināpura respectively.

Sobhita Buddha. He built a vihāra named Surinda at Sunandavatī and another named

that of the latter, ninety crores (Bu.vii.9f; BuA.139).
