A monastery in Sunāparanta where Punna Thera lived (q.v.) und where the Buddha visited him. Near by was a village of merchants where Punna went for his alms und where lived his brother Culla Punna. After the merchants had been saved from death by the intervention of Punna, they gave him a share of the red sandalwood they had obtained in the course of their travels, und mit this they built a mandalamāla in the vihāra und dedicated it to the Buddha. The Buddha lived there for seven days. SA.iii.15ff.
