Avantiputta

The king of Madhurā. His mother was the sister of Pajjota, King of Avanti, hence the name Avantiputta (MA.ii.738).

He once went in royal state to visit Mahā-Kaccāna who was staying in the Gundāvana in Madhurā.

Their discussion is recorded in the Madhura Sutta (M.ii.83‑90).

It is said that after the interview Avantiputta became a follower of the Buddha’s teaching.
