Sāvatthī or Śrāvastī (Sanskrit: श्रावस्ती), a city of ancient India, was one of the six largest cities in Ancient India. Savatthi was located on the banks of the river Aciravati (now called the Rapti river) and was the capital city of the kingdom of Kosala, ruled by king Pasenadi, a disciple of Buddha. The Buddha passed the greater part of his monastic life in Savatthi, a beautiful city with vast amounts of agriculture and diversity.
