Mallikārāma

A pleasance in Sāvatthi belonging to Queen Mallikā.

It is described as “Samayappavādakatindukācīra- (v.l. tindukākhīra- ekasalaka).” D.i.178; M.ii.22, etc; Sp.i.107, etc.

The Commentary (MA.ii.710; cf. DA.ii.365) says it was called Samyappavādaka because teachers holding various views used to gather there and discourse on their doctrines. It was surrounded by tindukakhīra (timbaru) trees, hence tindukācīra (sic); at first it possessed only one hall, but later many were erected through the good fortune of Poṭṭhapāda — hence its epithet Ekasālāka.
