Dakkhinagiri vihara - A monastery built by Saddhatissa in Ceylon (Mhv.xxxiii.7).

It was restored by Dhatusena (Cv.xxxviii.46), and Kassapa V. granted a village for its maintenance (Cv.lii.60).

It is probably identical with the Dakkhinagiridalha vihara, in which Aggabodhi I. erected an assembly hall (Cv.xlii.27).

It has sometimes been identified with the present Mulkirigala vihara (Cv.Trs.i.33, n.3).

It was once the residence of Appiha Samanera (MT.552) and of Kala Buddharakkhita (MA.i.469).
