Jotivana

The name given to the Nandanavana in Anurādhapura after Mahinda had taught there, converting a large number of people (Sp.i.82: Mhv.xv.202). It was situated immediately before the south gate of the city (Ibid., 1, 7, 8). It was included in the boundaries of the Mahāvihāra and, later, Mahāsena built the Jetavana-vihāra in Jotivana (Mhv.xxxvii.33).

It is said (DA.i.131; see also Cv.xxxvii.65; lii.59) that when Mahinda taught at Jotivana there was an earthquake.
