A mountain occupied for some time by Paṇḍukābhaya during his campaign against his uncle.
It was in the neighbourhood of this mountain that Paṇḍukābhaya met and married Suvaṇṇapāli (Mhv.x.28 ﬀ).
The district around it was called Girikaṇḍa-desa, and this was later given by Paṇḍukābhaya to his father-in-law, Girikaṇḍasiva (Mhv.x.82).
