One of the nirayas. King Dandaki was born there because of his heinous crime (J.v.114, 143; ItvA.195).
Sarabhanga spoke of him as suffering there, sunk in a mass of glowing coals (kukkula) one hundred leagues deep; huge glowing sparks fall on him and enter his body through nine sores (J.v.144).
Beside this niraya are the Gūtha-niraya and the Simbalivana. M.iii.185.
