Pali Word Grammar from Pali Myanmar Dictionary
Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Cittarāja:1.Cittarāja.-A Yakkha.It was the custom for ancient kings at the time of the Kattika Festival to deck themselves in great array and,standing on the bank of a lake ”in the presence of Cittarāja,” (meaning,probably,in front of his statue) to shoot arrows to the four quarters.J.ii.372.

2.Cittarāja.-A Yakkha whom Pandukābhaya honoured by giving him a settlement at the lower end of the Abhaya tank.On festival days the Yakkha occupied a seat beside the king.The Mahāvamsa (xi.4,84,87,104) says that Citta-rāja was an incarnation of the herdsman Citta (7) who saved Panduka-bhaya’s life,but it is more likely that the Cittarāja mentioned here is identical with Cittarāja (1),and that the festival refers to the Kattika festival.
