A mote hall built by the Mallas of Pava.

When it was finished they invited the Buddha to be its first occupant. The Buddha went with the monks and spent the night in the hall.

It was on this occasion that Sariputta recited the Sangiti Sutta (D.iii.207ff).

Buddhaghosa says (DA.iii.971) that the hall was so called (Thrown aloft er) because of its great height.
