Maghādeva-ambavana

A mango grove in Mithilā where Maghādeva lived in meditation after retiring from household life (J.i.138 f; vi. 95).

This grove existed even in the time of the Buddha, and during his stay there with Ānanda he taught the Maghādeva Sutta (M.ii.74).

Buddhaghosa explains (MA.ii.732; see also Mtu.iii.450) that the garden was originally planned by Maghādeva, and that other kings, from time to time, replaced trees that had died.
