Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Karerimandalamālā:A pavilion near the Karerikutikā,evidently a hall with a thatched roof supported by wooden pillars,but with no walls (D.ii.1; Dial.ii.5,n.2).Buddhaghosa calls it a nisīdanasālā (sitting-hall).Between this hall and the Gandhakuti was the Karerimandapa.Probably the term Karerimandalamālā was used to denote all the grounds within the Gandhakuti,the Karerikutikā and this hall (Gandhakuti pi Karerikutikā pi sālā pi Karerimandalamālo ti vuccati) (DA.ii.407).Dhammapāla,however,says that only the mandapa and the sālā were called Karerimandalamālā.He explains mandalamālā thus:tinapannacchadanam anovassakam mandalamālo; atimuttakādi latāmandapo ti apare (UdA.203).The monks seem to have been in the habit of sitting out here and talking on various topics at the close of the day.One such topic is recorded in the Udāna (Ud.,p.30f),for discussing which the monks drew on themselves the Buddha’s stern rebuke.
