v.l. Nangaraka.– A Sākyan township near Medatḷumpa. From there Pasenadi, accompanied by Dīgha-Kārāyana, paid his last visit to the Buddha, as recorded in the Dhammacetiya Sutta. M.ii.118.
The Buddha evidently once stayed in Nagaraka, for in the Cūḷasuññatā Sutta, Ānanda is reported as reminding the Buddha that once, while staying at Nagaraka, the Buddha had remarked that he lived “with the void a great deal.”
