A monastery in Sunāparanta where Puṇṇa Thera lived (q.v.) and where the Buddha visited him. Nearby was a village of merchants where Puṇṇa went for his alms and where lived his brother Cūḷa Puṇṇa. After the merchants had been saved from death by the intervention of Puṇṇa, they gave him a share of the red sandalwood they had obtained in the course of their travels, and with this they built a maṇḍalamāla in the vihāra and dedicated it to the Buddha. The Buddha lived there for seven days. SA.iii.15 ﬀ.
