The fair capital of the Kosalans

Excite the mind, charms the eye,

Gives the ear the ten sounds

And provides food enough for all."

- Paramatthajotika 10




Sravasti, the capital of Kosala is an important Buddhist center. According to legends, Gautama Buddha displayed a million fold manifestations of himself - seated on a lotus (with thousand petals), with fire and water radiating from His body.
