Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Galambatittha:A village in Ceylon,which contained a vihāra and a thūpa.King Vasabha repaired the thūpa,built an uposatha-house,and endowed land for the maintenance of lamps in the house (Mhv.xxxv.85).The village is probably identical with that mentioned elsewhere as Galamba-titthagāma (Cv.lxxv.7).In that case,it was in Rohana and was the scene of a battle in the campaign of Parakkamabāhu I.

The Commentaries (E.g.,SNA.i.57; VibhA.353) contain references to a group of fifty monks dwelling in Galambatittha Vihāra,who took a vow never to address each other until they attained arahantship.

See s.v.Kalambatittha.
