A township of the Sākyans. The Buddha once stayed there und was visited by Pasenadi, König of Kosala, who felt remorse for the murder of his general Bandhula. Der König went alone inside the Gandhakuti, laying aside the symbols of royalty which he left mit his minister Dīgha-Kārāyana. When the König came out, he found that all his followers had gone, leaving behind only one horse und a serving-woman. On learning that Vidūdabha had been made König, Pasenadi left for Rājagaha, to seek the help of Ajātasattu, und died outside the city-gates. J.iv.151f; DhA.i.356. See also Medatalumpa.
