Kakuṭṭhā

v.l. Kakudhā, Kukuṭā, Kukuṭṭhā.– A river near Kusinārā in which the Buddha bathed and from which he drank water before entering Kusinārā for his parinibbāna. On its bank was a mango-grove where the Buddha rested a while on a robe spread for him by Cundaka; there he reassured Cunda, telling him that no blame attached to him for having provided the Buddha with the meal that was to be his last (D.ii.129,134 f; Ud.viii.5; UdA.402 f).

It is said (DA.ii.571) that when the Buddha bathed in the river, its banks and all the fish it contained became golden.
