Pubbārāma

1. Pubbārāma.– A park outside the eastern gate of Sāvatthi. It was the custom of the Buddha to spend his siesta there after eating at the house of Anāthapiṇḍika (DhA.i.413; see also MA.i.369).

In the Pubbārāma, Visākhā erected the Migāramātupāsāda, the site costing her ninety million and the building another ninety million (DhA.i.413). The Pubbārāma in Sāvatthi corresponded to the Uttammevi-vihāra in Anurādhapura (UdA.158; MA.i.471).

It was while staying at the Pubbārāma that the Buddha sent the novice Sumana to fetch water from Anotatta (DhA.iv.120).

The Vighāsāda Jātaka (J.iii.310) was also taught there.

2. Pubbārāma.– A monastery in Sri Lanka, built by Sena I and his consort Saṅghā (Cv.l.69; see also Cv.Trs.i.144, n. 4). Parakkamabāhu I is said to have restored it. SadS. 58.
