Probably the actual name of the village in Kāsi which was given by Mahākosala to his daughter when she married Bimbisāra.

The village produced a revenue of one hundred thousand, and was given to the queen for her bath and perfume money.

After Bimbisāra's death, Pasenadi withdrew the gift from Ajātasattu, which act was the cause of a war between the two.

Later, when Pasenadi's daughter Vajirā was married to Ajātasattu, the village was given back as part of her dowry.

J.ii.403; iv.342; S.i.82ff; SA.i.110, 120f; AA.ii.833; DhA.iii.259.
