Jīvakambavana

A mango-grove in Rājagaha, belonging to Jīvaka, which he made over to the Buddha and his monks. He built a monastery in the grove, and there the Buddha stayed several times. On one such occasion Ajātasattu visited the Buddha and the Sāmaññaphala Sutta was taught (D.i.47 ff). The Jīvaka Suttas were also taught there. The mango-grove was near Maddakucchi, so there they carried the Buddha when his foot was injured by a splinter from the rock hurled by Devadatta (DhA.ii.164, etc.)

It was in this grove that Cūḷapanthaka attained Arahantship, and, at that time, there were five hundred monks there (J.i.114 f., etc.)

Nuns, too, appear to have gone there for their siesta. ThigA.245 f.
