A river, which flowed through Rājagaha.

On its bank was a Paribbājakārāma where famous Paribbājakas lived in the Buddha's time (A.i.185; ii.29, 176; S.i.153).

The river lay between Andhakavinda and Rājagaha, and probably rose in Gijjhakūta (see Vin. Texts i.254, n.2).

It is identified with the Pañcāna River. Law, E.G.I., p. 38.
