Naḷerupucimanda

A grove near Verañjā where the Buddha spent part of his time on his visit to Nerañjā (Vin.iii.1; A.iv.172, 197).

Buddhaghosa explains (Sp.i.108) that the chief tree to be found there was a pucimanda (nimba) tree at the foot of which was a shrine dedicated to a yakkha named Naḷeru. The tree was shady and beautiful to look upon.

The road northwards (to Uttarakuru?) went past this tree (Ibid.,184).
