A chain of mountains in Majjhimadesa. Not far away from it was a very populous town on a river. In this river many mere bathed, and along its banks sat beautiful courtesans tempting them. It was one of these courtesans that tempted the sage Nārada (J.iii.463).

Arañjagiri was one of the places passed by Vessantara and his family on their way from their home to Vankagiri. From the city of Jetuttara to Suvannagiritāla was five leagues and it was five leagues more to Kontimāra; thence to Arañjaragiri was five and again five to Dunni-vittha (J.vi.514).

This was the road followed by banished men (J.vi.493) (v.l. Arañjara°).
