Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Mallikārāma:A pleasance in Sāvatthi belonging to QueenMallikā.

It is described as ”Samayappavādaka-Tindukācīra - (v.l.tindukākhīra)- ekasalaka.” D.i.178; M.ii.22,etc.; Sp.i.107,etc.

The Commentary (MA.ii.710; cf.DA.ii.365) says it was calledSamyappavādaka because teachers holding various views used to gather there and discourse on their doctrines.It was surrounded by tindukakhīra (timbaru) trees,hence tindukācīra (sic); at first it possessed only one hall,but later many were erected through the good fortune ofPotthapāda - hence its epithet Ekasālāka.
