A market town near Kosambī. The Buddha went there and was warned by cowherds and others not to approach Ambatiṭṭha as a fierce Nāga dwelt there. Sāgata Thera, hearing this, went to Ambatiṭṭha and subdued the Nāga, afterwards rejoining the Buddha at Bhaddavatikā. Vin.iv.108f.
The town is probably identical with Bhaddavatī, and was in the Cetiya Country. Vin.iv.108
