The sangati is a part of Buddhist monastic garment, the "triple robe" or tricivara. It is the outer robe, which comes over the upper robe (the uttarasanga), and the undergarment (the antaravasaka). It is described in Vinaya rules (Vin 1:94 289).

In representations of the Buddha, the sangati is usually the most visible garment, with the undergarment or uttarasanga protruding at the bottom. It is quite similar in shape to the Greek himation, and its shape and folds have been treated in Greek style in the Greco-Buddhist art of Gandhara.
