Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Makhādeva:A mango grove in Mithilā where Makhādeva lived in meditation after retiring from household life (J.i.138 f.; vi.95).

This grove existed even in the time of the Buddha,and during his stay there with Ananda he preached the Makhādeva Sutta (M.ii.74).

Buddhaghosa explains (MA.ii.732; see also Mtu.iii.450) that the garden was originally planned by Makhādeva,and that other kings,from time to time,replaced trees which had died.
