Raw data

A monastery in Savatthi, near Jetavana, built by Pasenadi (J.ii.15). It was to the south east of the city, corresponding to Thuparama in Anuradhapura. (MA.ii.1021). It was there that the Nandakovada Sutta was preached (M.iii.271). This was probably the monastery built for nuns by Pasenadi, at the Buddha's suggestion, after the assault on Uppalavanna in Andhavana, referred to in the Dhammapada Commentary (DhA.ii.52)."
