  • Nagaraka (v.l. Nangaraka)

A Sākiyan township near Medatalumpa.

From there Pasenadi, accompanied by Digha-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 Cūla-Suññatā Sutta, Ananda 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."
