The site of Sahet-Mahet

Sravasti on the bank of Rapti was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Kosala. During the days of the Buddha, its prosperity reached its peak under the powerful ruler of Prasenaji. In the Mahaparinibnana-Sutta, Sravasti is mentioned as one of the six important cities where Buddha had a large following. Now the remains of the famous Jetavana lie within an irregular enclosure wall at Sahet.
